Notes from Bed-Friday, January 23rd

A Bath from Daisy

Puppy Love

Kisses from Mom

Eating my fingers

Pleased

Big Yawn

Funny Faces




My doctor called me this morning to let me know that my blood work was still not looking quite right. It looks as though I have post partum preeclampsia. She called a high risk specialist and he agreed with her treatment plan of blood pressure medication and bed rest with my feet up to treat the swelling. I have to take my blood pressure several times a day on my snazzy machine and report the numbers back to my doctors. They want to see me again on Monday and I have another appointment with my regular doctor on Tuesday so he can be in the loop on my treatment in the upcoming weeks. Mom and A seriously will not let me move, except to go the bathroom and feed baby J. I'm a prisoner in my own apartment, but I know it is for my own good. =) I DO NOT want to get checked back into the hospital and I need to get better so I can run around with my sweet baby boy.


J has been a doll. We are all loving each and every moment with him. Since we still have to wake him up to eat, the pediatrician gave us permission to let him sleep for 4 hours at night between feedings. I was pretty excited at the prospect of such a long period of sleep, but J had other ideas on how the night was to go! He has discovered his fingers and hands and loves to escape out of his Daddy's tight swaddles and suck his fingers. A is a diaper changing machine. He is FAR ahead of me in this department and doing an absolute amazing job. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband. My Mom is on her 8th load of laundry and is an organizing queen. I'm so grateful to have them both helping me. Daisy has done a great job with J and we allowed her to give him a few kisses this afternoon. She is currently sleeping under his car seat (his favorite place to sleep) and keeping a watchful eye.

Oh what precious pictures! Treasure each and every moment with your newborn. I know you feel sleep deprived--and you are. Just take thousands of pictures and plenty of video. The "infant" stage is just so short. Your baby is a true doll!

He is precious! My daughter just turned 1 and I miss these days of her being an infant. It really does go by so fast.

Okay, just have to comment again... he is soooooo handsome, and that picture of Daisy kissing him is absolutely precious. I showed it to my husband (macho man) and he even got a huge grin on his face. :) Congrats again!
