Okay, okay.. here's a blog. I know this can be a nice tool to keep everyone updated.
So yes, REAL QUICK.. they're getting everything ready for us to be discharged tomorrow! So now I'm getting all overwhelmed. I know there will be a lot to go over tomorrow, papers to sign, ect. So we'll be busy.
Taylor will still need to be fed by bottle most of the day, breastfeeding only twice a day. She does get tired out easily during feedings. Nursing does take a bit more of her energy than the bottle. We will be scheduling a pediatrician apt for this Monday and she will have her first follow up appointment with her cardiologist the following Monday. She will be on a lasix) medicine to control the amount of blood flow to the lungs. The cardiologist will then follow her closely as she grows and gets stronger. Within a few months her body will then tell us when she will need her heart surgery to fix the defect (I believe this is it) .
We just ask for prayer that everything goes smoothly as they hand her over into our care. I do have a bit of anxiety with her heart condition and working out all the feeding patterns (pumping, bottle, nursing, ect.). I know within a few days, it will all seem more familiar to us and not be so overwhelming. We are really excited to finally bring her home.
We'll see if I can keep this blogging up from time to time, to keep you all updated. Each and everyone of you are so important to us and we really want to be able to share with you more personally than through technology. We are so thankful to have love and support. We have so much to share on that side of things and how God has amazed us through this process. He has been our strength. In time, we are looking forward to telling about it. It's all about what He's doing in our lives..
