Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday... now Wednesday. Time moves painfully slow when you are stuck at the hospital!
I feel so bad for baby Alice. All of the pokes and tests and caths and discomfort... it breaks my heart! So, yesterday, I indulged in a little retail therapy for us both. Toys R Us lets you order online and pick up in store, and that is just what we did. I haven't left her side since Saturday but Grandma was our hero and picked up Alice's new mobile. This thing is AWESOME and she has been talking and smiling at it ever since we set it up. She is really enjoying herself and it does my heart good to see it! :)
Alice's IV infiltrated in the middle of the night last night, and her arm swelled up three times her normal size and felt like a rock! Thankfully, the nurses were able to stick her other arm. They did discuss putting an IV in her HEAD but thank God we are not there. I can't imagine how awful that would feel for her.
She is still having tummy issues and the antibiotics aren't helping that at all, but she is nursing again in five minute stretches every three hours or so. We are hopeful that we will go home this evening, but it all depends on our sweet baby girl and how she holds down her milk.
Thank you again for all of the prayers and positive thoughts! It definitely makes us feel your love and support, and it is a blessing to know that we aren't alone. :)
