We are thrilled to be home, all under the same roof with a recovering baby. Matthew is now taking almost the same volume of milk that he was taking before the surgery. His output is looking about the way it did before surgery. (Was that coded correctly to not be too much information?) We plan to fortify his milk in the next few days so that he’ll get ample calories, as we did before surgery. His digestive tract is looking good!
Now Matthew just needs to remember how to sleep through the night again. I keep telling him sleep does the body good, but he got used to the late night visitors while he was in the hospital and now thinks it is party time in his crib at 1am, 3am and 5am.
We are grateful for the successful surgery, our skilled surgeon, our healing boy, and the prayers and well wishes of so many. Thank you!
