This Weekend

Avin should be joining our family at home!

I could scream, jump for joy and give all her nurses great big hugs! I am so excited for her to come home but I am a little scared. I don't think I will get much sleep the first couple of nights as we are so used to her being hooked up to monitors that tell us if anything is going wrong and when she comes home she will be monitor and cord free!

Her feeding tube is out, she gained weight last night ( lost the night before but they said that is normal when I child goes to adlib feedings ) and is back to 4lbs. She can eat on demand now, so whenever she shows she is hungry she can eat. She has to eat atleast 7 times a day and they would like her to eat 8 or 9 times.

She will have the car seat test, some more blood work done and another new born screening done and then they might watch her for another 24 hours and she should be free to come home. I hope she can come home tomorrow! Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we would love for her to be home with us this weekend.
