Wintry Wednesday! 10:56a.m.
Good morning, from Portland.. It rained last night, so we woke up to lots of rain & got very wet walking to the hospital. Within an hour of being in, (I was here at 6:50a.m.), it started to snow.. looks like a wet snow mix now! Geesh.. I would like to see the white stuff from my own couch.. & not having to go out in it.
Gracie stayed the same with weight at 5lbs. 11oz.
She looks great this morning, and was resting when I came in; after apparently a big apnea spell.. :(. She has to be clear of spells for at least 7 days before discharge, sooo.. as much as we are looking forward to leaving.. we want her to be safe as well.
She & I had a talking to.. and I said a little extra prayer to the man upstairs. Hopefully it was just a fluke.. and she'll remember to breathe :) (that's needed, Gracie!!)
Good morning, Momma!!!
Got sidetracked.. for awhile, but now I'm back.
Margo is on today.. and we are going over stuff for meeting on Monday.
For those interested: Lowe's has a 30pack AA batteries for $4.00 on black friday.. good deal!! So, we may do a little black friday shopping, come on now, who's going to be at Lowe's?? lol
Gracie's sleeping now.. she started her continous feeds last night from 11pm to 6am, this means we won't have to get up in the middle of the night at home. Every 3 hours during the day, and if she can take a bottle, she will ... all in due time!
Dr. Tom Reynolds, nerurologists came by today & went over her MRI.. looks good. She does have some weakness in her right leg, that will need some extra PT.. maybe a brace in future, will all depend. It was a good conference with him, very hopeful! She looks great. Both arms have good range of motion. And we'll follow up with neurology in months to come back home.
Okay.. that's all folks.. I'm tired! :(
Love you all,
pattie & gary, gracie & max
