Hospital Week 6
Yes, yet another hospital post! We are still here, but we are now able to be home from 1-9pm each day. It is so wonderful to be able to come home and spend time with the family. Kailyn & Joshua are quite thrilled about this. It makes our time at the hospital much more bearable. Noah is doing quite well. We had to increase his TPN calories again because he wasn't gaining weight. So now with all the extra calories on board, he is porking out again at a whopping 9lbs 3oz!!! We are at 20ml/hr with his feeds, although we have had lots of refluxing today. Looks like it will be another week or two before we are out of there completely.
Noah is full of energy and joy and he is looking so good. His smiles and giggles have won the hearts of many at the hospital. It seems that many of our health care providers have come across this blog in their search for information on 12q deletion. It has been neat to share more of Noah with these people who have become like family over the past weeks. I've posted a few pictures of our hospital days, including Noah in his halloween bumblebee costume. He was the cutest patient! (Okay, so perhaps I'm a bit biased!)
