Faith didn't eat that well last night, and she lost a little bit of weight... they said today that if she didn't eat better/more, they will have to turn the TPN back on. So I have made sure that every time she eats today she's gotten a lot of milk, and I have been waking her up to eat. Dr. Parker said that as long as she is eating well and not continuing to lose weight, they will still let her go home on Saturday, and that he is more comfortable sending her home, even though she might be "borderline", because of the fact that I have been here all the time and know what I'm talking about. Dr. Sandoval was by this morning to threaten her with TPN if she isn't a good girl who drinks her milk...
Anyway, that's about it for today so far... I think today's the last time we'll have Mary Ann for a nurse, and tonight we should have Maree, and it might be our last time with her, too. Things are falling into place for us to go home, the docs called Faith's prescriptions in to the pharmacy at home, and Dave is going to pick them up on his lunch tomorrow, since the pharmacy is near his work. He is coming down tomorrow night and bringing the carseat, so we will be able to have Faith do the carseat test, and then we will do our learning about CPR, carseats, and infant choking. The carseat came in a huge box, so we'll be able to pack a lot of stuff in it, and one of the people who refills the supplies for the nurses is going to save me some boxes tomorrow so I can start packing. It doesn't seem like we have that much here, but I know once I start packing it will be a lot. Hopefully we will be able to pack the car well enough that it will all fit!
I have to go wake Faith up to eat now, but I will post more tonight if anything happens! (And I'll try to post some pictures, too!)
