We are home!

Thank you again for all your prayers.

Simeon is eating great and getting chubby before our eyes.  (although, it might be the fluids they pumped into him at this point)  I am supplementing my breastmilk with formula and feeding him every 3 hours.
We will have a nurse coming daily to weigh him for the next 2 weeks, and then every other day after that and hopefully then weekly after that.  Weekly pediatrition appts and an appointment with his Urologist on September 5th.  He'll need some extra tests done that week, loooong tests, including one I hate, where they strap him to a table and insert dye into him and watch where the obstruction is in his ureter.  That test takes 50 minutes and he looks at me, screaming, like "why won't you pick me up mama?"

I think his urinary tract infection was probably there for quite a while, as today he has been laughing, giggling and smiling like crazy!!  He has never been a very smily baby.  Poor baby.  Who knows how long he's been feeling crappy.  Hopefully this is it, a blessing in disguise!

The nurses were wonderful, we even got to see some of the same ones we had when we were there in May for his lip surgery. 

We also found out he is anemic and so are supplementing with iron---yuck--He hates that bottle, drinks it sloooooowly...

Thank you again for your prayers, they mean the world to us. 
I'll try to post pictures later this week!

  7. So glad you're home! I pray the tests go as well as can be. My mantra was always, "It could be worse" during my oldest's medically strange and challenging year. And that's true even if the tears are still hard to deal with.

  17. Our Possible was always a very grabby baby. We all thought she just had a rotten personallity (but we loved her to death!) we just thought she was a cranky person. Then when she was 6 we learned that she had a very rare congenital heart condition. Talk about a guilty mom. I realized that all those times I looked at her and said, "PLEASE just STOP crying", or "can't you just be still for five minutes without me holding you?" . Then to find out we needed to be thankful that she was not quiet. As bad as her heart was if she had been quiet she might not have been still with us. I am now so thankful for all those tears. If I had only known, though. It took me years to forgive myself for not realizing it was her heart sooner. I had failed to be her advocate instead I questioned her. So wrong of me. I hear that regret in your writing. I hope I am wrong. Please don't beat yourself up about him not being a smiley baby. You can see his joy in his eyes and sometimes you catch it so well in pictures that I feel like I know him. Stay strong and know that you are a great mom. I wish I was as strong as you!
