Saturday, November 27, 2010 4:21 PM, ESTTori went to the ped this morning. I forgot how long it takes to get out of the house with a newborn, especially one that has feeding issues, since you never want to put a hungry baby in the car! We were running about 20 minutes late, good thing that our ped office is really laid back on Saturday (mainly just sick child visits). Thankfully they didn't make us wait in the waiting room at all and took us right back to the exam room.
She has gained 5 oz since being discharged so they are thrilled! They kept telling us how great she looks and how beautiful her scar on her stomach has healed. They want to see her back in a week or 2 for her 2 month check-up, to get her "on schedule" but I am not sure, we have 2 follow-up appointments at the hospital in the next 3 weeks plus and appointment with the eye surgeon, I think having her in so many waiting rooms probably isn't the best of ideas. Going to have to really think about that one! We may wait and go back in at 4 months instead unless she gets approved for the RSV vaccination, then we will have to go back every month.
She took almost all her feeds yesterday completely BY MOUTH, but was lazy today at her last 2 feds!
She has discovered her voice since getting home from the hospital, she lets us know what she likes and doesn't like and cries to get our attention. I think she realizes that everyone here jumps if she fusses, very different from the hospital and nurses who were too busy to drop everything an pick her up!
