Mommy and Cale Update

Morning, friends and family!

Just wanted to give y'all a quick update. Both Cale and I are still hospitalized :/

Since he was four weeks early he is spending some time in the NICU working on getting stronger. I've been so proud of his accomplishments over the last four days, though! He is completely off any oxygen now, and they've moved him to a big boy bed--not an isolette. His current goal is to work on his feedings. He started out eating 5mL per feeding, now we are at 20mL. He's such a strong, brave boy! I'm ready to be snuggled in at home with him, though!

Me? Well, Im still a patient too. I've had some trouble recoverning from the surgery---not necessarily pain wise, though. We're still having trouble controlling my blood pressure and pulse rate, and as of this morning, my hemoglobin was a 6 (very low!) leaving me quite, quite anemic. To spare you with all the details, getting you to pictures of my handsome son more quickly, I'll just tell you that I've spent the majority of my day today in my hospital bed receiving FOUR units of blood. Yes, four.  Geez Louise, this 'ol body of mine!

Feast your eyes on the most perfect thing that Alan and I have ever done, the perfect culmination of our love for each other.

I wish that I would of saw this blog post earlier than now. I am so sorry that you and Cale both had to spend extra time in the hospital. Being in the nicu is so very stressful and tiresome, I can only imagine your pain of you being there as well. Even though you're both doing better now I will being praying! Loves.
