Tuesday, September 25th, 2007
Today was all about me and my bink. The night nurse last night worked with me to get me to take the small binkie (I have moved up from the preemie one). I fought her a little but eventually I got the hang of it. When Mommy and Daddy showed up for their visit tonight I was chilling in my crib, watching the nurses and sucking my bink. Aren't I cute! Daddy took some video of me with my bink so you could all see how good I am at it. The night nurse also pulled out a swing and put me in it. She said I liked it for a little while but then because of sitting up my secretions got really thick and I got fussy. What do you expect - I have been flat on my back for four weeks now! I will have to start spending more time sitting up and then I will love the swing. Mommy brought some wrist rattles with animals on them so I have something to do while the nurses are helping the other babies that are more sick then I am. She stuck them to my crib so I can look at them when I am not wearing them. They are really cute.
Mommy and Daddy got all excited because there was a discharge planning meeting today and the respiratory therapist said she thought I was going to be sent home on Friday. My night nurse, though, said that she thought she had heard that all of the arrangements for my supplies and medical equipment hasn't been worked out yet so it probably won't be as soon as that. Mommy and Daddy are going to try to find out for sure.
