Heart Healthy

Yep, we've overcome yet another thing! Joey had his follow-up with the cardiologist today because he was born with a small VSD, so he has a murmur. The doc today said everything was fine, and he would bet money that the hole would close up on its own. Thats pretty much what we've heard from everyone else, so I wasn't too worried about it, but it felt nice to hear it again! Yay!!

Another hurdle overcome!

So Joey had his hearing checked while in the NICU and they told us he failed in his right ear. We went to the Ear Nose and Throat specialist to get his hearing rechecked, and YAY! He passed in BOTH ears! I'm so glad we have one less thing to worry about! Now to get the trip to Duke straightened out :)

Not much new to report...

Yep, its been pretty much normal newborn stuff, other than the extra trips to the different doctors. Joey went to the neurosurgeon yesterday to get his stitches out and to check and see how he's doing. That went fine - he's not acting any different than he should be. Should get another MRI sometime in the next 4-5 months to see how his brain looks. He was SUPPOSED to have his hearing double checked, but silly me goofed and missed the appointment. We rescheduled it for the 26th. Then on the 28th we go see the cardiologist to check out the little hole in his heart. I'm not too concerned about that really, it's so common and most of the time they close up on their own.

That's pretty much it! Joey's a good eater and only wakes up twice in the night, except that he seems to have his days and nights a bit confused, but that's normal too. I could use a bit more sleep though! Hard to do when you've got a toddler to chase after!

Been a busy week!

It's been quite an adjustment from one kid to two, but nothing I can't handle. The hardest part is that Joey's been having some issues breastfeeding. He latched ok in the hospital, but once we got home he decided he didn't want to do it anymore. My supply has been suffering from so much bottle feeding. I've used up my frozen supply I pumped while I was in the hospital. I've been trying to keep up the pumping, but I can't seem to get enough to get through any longer than overnight. Maybe I'll try Fenugreek... I heard that works really well. Oh well. Whatever happens he will be fed whether its formula or breastmilk.
