I'll be selfish tonight:
Tricia had another good day, but she was very exhausted from everything she did yesterday. Hopefully tomorrow she can have some more energy. She took another walk, and we went and saw the baby again tonight (first time was last night). I'll post some more pics tomorrow...
Biggest prayer for Tricia right now is SLEEP! She's back to the same sleeping pattern she was in the last few weeks before Gwyneth arrived...this will lead to another crash and burn, but this time there won't be a 9 day sedation party like she enjoyed last time. Please pray with us that she will start sleeping at night!
Gwyneth is doing about the same. They say her belly is a little smaller (good thing) than yesterday, and they're pretty sure the issue is simply some stool (poop for the immature among us) stuck in there somewhere. She has been stooling (what a funny word) a few times a day, so they're hoping that it will work itself out shortly (with the help of some Glycerin Chips).
Biggest prayer for her is that this Distention will go away and they'll be able to start feeding her breast milk AND take her off the vent and on the CPAP.
I spent the night with Tricia last night, getting about 4 hours of light sleep in the recliner... Went home this morning for another 4 hours of deep sleep. I'm heading home in a bit, and will plan on sleeping in tomorrow.
Biggest prayer for me (and Agnes who is trading shifts with me) is that I will get enough sleep and won't get sick (this will greatly depend on Tricia getting the sleep she needs at night). (This is not an invitation for you to offer me suggestions on sleep, etc....I'm doing well so far, but every now and then I have lots of catching up to do)
