The Week's Events

Hello all,
First of all, thank you for all of the warm welcome-home wishes. This week started out great with Braden increasing how much he ate and gaining good weight. Then, yesterday we noticed he was sleeping more, not waking up to eat, and not eating as much as he had been in the days prior. We were in constant contact with the cardiac nurse practioner at Children's yesterday, and she told us to bring him into the ER to check him over. Finally, at midnight we were given the good news that all of his lab results and X-rays came back okay. Needless to say, we didn't get home until 2am. We talked to Dr. G. last night as well and she doesn't seem too concerned. She's "chalking" this up as "normal" baby behavior.....he's making his own schedule with new sleeping and eating patterns. The concern we still have though is that Braden needs to take in a certain amount of fluid each day to stay hydrated. We spoke with Dr. G. again today and she said there's still nothing to really worry about. She told us that he's taking in the minimum to stay hydrated, so we shouldn't panic. We hope and continue to pray that Braden keeps up with his eating now that he is home.

We will continue to keep you posted over the weekend.

Thanks for checking in,
Love Steph
