Today I feel yucky!  There is no other word for it.  At 3 am we were woke up by the nurse to tell us that she changed the rate on Nick’s feeds because they had changed the orders.  We still don’t know why so we are checking into that.  Then she woke us up again at 4 am to draw labs – no stick – from his port.  Then I couldn’t go back to sleep because this poor little baby down the hall was screaming to the top of her lungs because she didn’t have anybody to hold her.  😦  It made me think of Kailey and it drove me crazy.

It doesn’t stop there.  Then at 6 am, respiratory therapy came in to give him his breathing treatment.  She got mad because we told her it was too early and that he was supposed to get it at 7am.  Then by this time, the med student has to come in and then the intern comes in about 20 minutes later and then they come in for vitals and then the real breathing treatment and then physical therapy.  It was 8:25.  Good grief.  We were tired before we even got up. 🙂

So now Nicholas is online talking to his first period digital communications class.  They have all been so great to Nick.  (Thanks guys!)  We are waiting for the doctors to come in for their morning visit.  It’s 10 am.  At 11:00 is starts all over again.  It looks like it’s going to be a very busy day.

Hope yours is great!

    Sorry you both have to go through so much in that little time and that early. It really doesn’t make sense having to start so dang early. And as Michael said, not at 3 in the a.m.
    Hope it will slow down so you both can get some rest. I also hope the little baby has more love and attention today. They mess with me, I’ll go up there and hold he or she, myself. Hang in there. I will be there saturday morn with some meat loaf, creamed potatoes, garden peas, homemade biscuits, and maybe , just maybe, a pumpkin pie.
    Love you both.

    Nick really impresses me, he has to go through so much but continues to be a trooper (not sure if that is a good word for such a grown young man). Really proud of him. Praying for you guys. Kailey is beautiful by the way. Take care.

    My gosh, couldn’t they count the 3am visit as a “morning visit”? Hope the rest of your day is more predictable and restful. See you soon!
