Gabe Update #1

I just went and saw Gabe for a bit. I got to hold him finally and it felt so good. I am so in love with this little boy. I only held him long enough to get a picture yesterday so getting to sit and hold him for a little while was so comforting. He had a pretty good night. He is still on room air and his breathing has slowed down a bit which is a good thing. They tried swaddling him and turning his bed warmer off but he got cold pretty quick so the warmer is back on. They are going to try again later today. His platelets are low but they said that goes along with my hypertension. He ate fairly well but has spit up everything he eats. I am going to breastfeed but he needs more than I can produce right now so he's getting formula. Since Carly and Anna both had milk allergy they are going to change his formula today and see if that helps. I think that's about it for now. Time for another nap.

  1. It must have been such a wonderful feeling to hold Gabe - what a stressful pregnancy this was with your BP acting up so early on :( I am in awe of your precious little boy - so adorable and big and just perfect!

    I hope the soy formula helps everything stay down.

    Yippee!!! Gabe is HERE!!!
