We had our first follow up appointment with Dr Bliss today (actually Julie) to check Finley’s weight since they wanted to make sure she was gaining weight at home – I was a little worried since without a scale I can’t be sure how much she was getting from me. On Thursday’s Pediatrician appointment she weighed 9lbs 10.5 ounces and today she weighs 9lbs 15 ounces!! She has gained 5 ounces since checking out on Wednesday. So happy that she is gaining so well now – I had a feeling she would do better once we got home! We will be working closely (weekly) with the NICU nutritionist to track her weight and make sure she continues on a positive growth track.
Things are going really well – I am just thrilled to be at home and to finally be a FAMILY of FOUR. We are all under one roof now and I will forever be so grateful. I am still in awe that we came home without a single tube or wire in sight. Her only medicines are her multivitamin and her Prilosec. I will be praising God for all of my days.
Rowan has been acting out a little more now, but I am hopeful that once she gets adjusted to things and we are able to consistently spend some one-on-one time with her, she will return to her normal 3 year old self with it’s normal amount of tandrums.
That’s all for now, Miss Finley is waking from her nap…
