Because I think it would go really good with my whine! Don’t get me wrong, I know I have a million and one things to be grateful for and believe me I am; but sometimes it’s all just a little much. The last few days I have just been really worn out with this NICU journey; the boys are all doing so well and I guess I am just ready to get them home. I am ready for a return to “normal” whatever normal is with three newborn triplets in the house 🙂 I know that those of our friends who have been on this roller coaster can understand and I hope that everyone else can see that these feelings have nothing to do with the boys and everything to do with stuff out of my control.
And now that everyone has read through my whining, I’ll reward you with an update! The boys are doing wonderful; Rowan now weighs 5 lbs. 6 oz, Elliott is 4 lbs. 7 ozs, and Finn is 5 lbs. 2 ozs. They are all eating at every other feed and are showing some slight improvements in their eating skills. Eli has been struggling a little with reflux but his new medicines have helped out some; you just have to be careful not to move him to much right after he eats or you could be wearing his dinner! Pretty much every day I go up there I am more amazed by the sight of my beautiful boys. They are spending more time awake and alert and they definitely recognize my voice. Their little personalities are devloping and it’s great to see how unique they all are. A few people have asked when I think they will get to come home and to tell the truth, I really don’t know. Hopefully it will be in the next few weeks; the biggest hurdle is eating. Once they are taking all of their calories by bottle for a few days with no other problems we will be good to go.
Oh, and I also have been served a big dinner of crow this week; I swore it would never happen, but you can now officially call me a mini-van momma! After looking at more vehicles than I care to count and spending way to much time with car salesmen, Ross and I bought a Honda Odyssey. I absolutely love it and truly feel it will be a great fit for our new family. Anything that can hold me, Ross, three infant carseats, and a 5 foot long stroller must have something going for it! Hope things have been going great for everybody and their families; thanks for checking in on us!
