One Shoe On, One Shoe Off

The scabs are coming! Who would have ever thought this is a good thing? But my shingles seems to be starting to scab over, which means the non-infectious state is right around the bend. Woo Hoo!

My little boy is doing better, he had a transfusion the other day and they added Re.glan to the Pre.vcid for his reflux. He has gained weight and is back down to room air with the nasal canula. Little girl continues to best him and is over 4 lbs and into a regular crib. I have a feeling she will be ready for discharge before him. But they are both still having spells, however at least some of them are self-resolving. And neither are bottling very well, so they both still have to conquer the whole eating thing.

The Snake is here for the weekend and we went blueberry picking this morning. It was easy and fun, but hot! Now he and dad are off to the hospital to see the little ones (I'm jealous).

So things are looking up. Thanks to everyone for their encouragement!

I'm glad you are healing and will be back to see your babies soon. I've been thinking about you guys and sending lots of Grow Fast! vibes. :-)

I hope you are all better really soon...I'm sure it's killing you not to be with your babies. I'm so glad that the Snake is with you for the weekend...nice to have fun for a change, huh?

Hurrah for the scabs! Hope things keep on getting better for you all

Glad to hear you are feeling better. I'm glad you got to have a chance to see the Snake.

As for names for animal or reptile theme? Like Turtle or Iggy (Iguana)? Husband or Dr. (?)

I am very happy for you and wish they will be discharged soon.

So relieved to hear you are healing and can see your babes soon.

It must have been wonderful to spend some time outdoors with The Snake. I bet he misses his mommy tons.

Your spirits sound like they are up in the post. I know it isn't an easy road. One day at a time will suffice for now :)

Oh, I'm so glad that both of you are doing better. You have had way more than your fair share of worries! I hope those babies get to come home soon.

I never thought I'd congratulate someone for crusting over with scabs... but congrats!

I hope you see the babies soon.
