Ace was put on a c-pap machine yesterday to help him breathe a little better. The nurses are actually all surprised that he's gone this long without one - apparently most newborn preemies need them for a while, and right away. Last night's nurse said that he'd only need it for a day or two. Just one of those preemie thangs.
He's gained an ounce, (up to 3 pounds, 1 ounce) and is gaining grams steadily. Here's hoping he gains weight as fast as his mommy did when she got married. The nurses say that he might be stalling because he's working kinda hard to breathe. Hope the c-pap helps.
Gimme an opinion here... how long after a baby's born is it acceptable to send out announcements? Not sure I want Ace's announcement pictures to be all filled with tubes and stuff, and he's probably about 4 weeks away from being unhooked and put in a regular bed. Is that incredibly vain, or do I have a valid concern?
So yesterday, after I posted here, I was e-mailing Melinda and all of a sudden, the room started to spin. Those two oxycodones took THREE HOURS to kick in. I was still in pain, but I was giggling about it. I haven't felt like that for a long time... actually, since I had those Grey Goose vodka tonics at the W bar during French Quarter Fest last year. Hoo-wee. I was freakin' loaded. I called my mommy, yes, my mommy the substance abuse counselor, and was all "How do I make this go away!" "Eat something and go to sleep." I did, and I did, and I felt better.
I bought Taylor Hicks' single. YES I DID. And it's good. Drew likes it.
