Transitional Week

Aiden will be 1-mo old this weekend and today is his great grandmother's birthday. Happy B-day mommy! Aiden is blessed not only with a great grandmother, but also a great great grandmother who calls often to find out how he is doing. This has been a very busy week. Aiden now weighs 4lbs 3oz, he has been taken back off his nasal cannula, he sleeps in a bassinet instead of the incubator, Aiden is starting to consistently latch on while nursing, he went for his first car ride yesterday, and he graduated from Hopkins NICU and is now at Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital in Baltimore. Khary and I spent the night at the hospital with him last night, so that we can get to know the nursing staff. His new nurse practitioner lowered his feeds from 35CC to 30CC and he lost weight within the first 12 hours of being there, so we are not too happy with the new direction thus far. As a result we will be at the hospital most of the day for the next couple of weeks until we are comfortable with the level of care he is receiving.

  1. Thank you for all the updates. I am assured that you will stay on top of those nurses...Aiden just needed a little time to get used to his new surroundings. But mom and dad have his back.

    Love auntie...
