Rosalie is coming home today!

Now I just need to teach her to nurse, as she still does not latch properly. There is plenty of breastmilk in my frozen stash for when I go back to work. I just wish I did not have to pump until then. ;) Anyway I can get her to eat until she figures out the nursing thing is fine with me, as she can now go home.

Rosalie actually nurse well today and drank her entire bottle of fortified breastmilk. I think she is finally getting the I need to eat idea. She needs to eat for 48 hours without using the feeding tube to get discharged from the hospital. She will be 37 weeks gestational age on Monday, which is considered full term.

Rosalie Arlene

She was born yesterday, 5 weeks 3 days early. She was 6 pounds, 4 ounces and 19 1/4 inches long. She'll be in the NICU for a few weeks, at least, until she learns to suck/swallow and breath and her jaundice clears up.

The silly Van, part 2

The fan was working fine this morning. The only thing I did was to take all the junk off the dashboard, as hubby likes to pile stuff there. Then is started acting up again. ARGH, make up your mind, you ornery piece of machinery.
