Enjoying my last week at home
I am getting really anxious about going back to work next week and it is going to be here before I know it. We had a busy day yesterday with Jordan. We took her by my office to say hello and then she had an appointment at the Children's spot to discuss her prilosec, thickner, and her apnea monitor. We did get verbally reprimanded for still having her asleep on her belly. I just don't think the doctors understand our need for sleep. She was doing pretty good and then we brought Rylee home and gave up. We are going to start working on it again this week. We will have to get her crib off of an elavation and she will have to be out of her tucker sling that keeps her from falling to the other end of the crib. We got the okay to try her with no thickner in her bottles and so far she is doing really good. This will be one less thing we have to worry about with her. She weighed in at 12 lb 9 oz. She has been eating much better and is eating 4 oz at at time. After this appointment we met Jordan's primary nurse and Rylee's primary nurse for lunch and it was so good to see them. We really miss seeing the nurses that took such good care of our girls. Thanks Erin and Amy for meeting up with us. Sorry we didn't get to bring Rylee with us this time. We then went up to the Saint Luke's NICU to see our favorite doctor and it was so good to be able to thank him again for saving Rylee's life on New Year's Day. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about this doctor and what he did for Rylee. I truly believe that this doctor, all the prayers and Rylee's will to fight got her through that awful day. He spent hours working with her to get her body back to functioning as it should. He always tells Troy and I that we are heros and I always tell him he is my hero. We had Tiny K infants and toddlers here today with the physical therapist and she had no concerns with the girls at this time. It was very good to hear they are doing a good job. We need to work on more tummy time with Rylee and Jordan is trying to master rolling over. We have a new nurse that started tonight and I absolutly love her. She also brought good news that she has a friend that is interested in being Jordan's nanny for us when Troy goes back to work. I can't wait for Troy to get home from playing tennis so I can tell him the good news. This was the one thing I had him in charge of so I am sure he will be glad to not have to search for a nanny.
