The roller coaster of nicu

This is something I typed a few days ago... But I figured that I would post it anyways... I will try to post tomorrow about how he is doing now... :). We are making progress and hopefully won't be too much longer:)
Here is my post from Sunday...

This is typical...

I so appreciate ALL of the doctors and nurses... But so much seems subjective in here.

Here is how it went today...Sunday night...

Nurse practitioner comes in... Seems not super happy with how Isaiah is doing... She says he needed to each 35 cc's of milk... If I nurse him for 20 minutes, he still needs to eat 35 cc's from the bottle after... If I don't nurse at all still 35 cc's... Clearly I have milk... I have been nursing Levi... So we KNOW he is getting it...  So she wouldn't at all take into account that they work harder at nursing and being a preemie would tire out more easily than normal and wouldn't maybe take 35 after nursing... She even talked about the possibility of a feeding tube even though he has gone from like 15 cc's to 40 cc's sometimes... It just seemed weird...  I said lets just do bottles for a few feeds and see what he takes...then I could pump... He took 38 cc's with no problem.  Then her nurse friend said we might be here another week...

Then the regular doctor came in an hour later and said he was doing great... Just needs to keep progressing... He even said we could take him off the lights tonight but decided to keep him on one more day... He said we are nearing the end...:):):):)

It is just crazy how they can have such different opinions of the same baby... I appreciate all of their help TONS!!! It can just be hard at times... You have the normal emotional rollar coaster of adoption then add the nicu rollar coaster... lord help me!!!!
Still amidst it all.... SO VERY THANKFUL!!!

Lifting up the medical team and Isaiah to Jesus. Praying he gives you strength to ride the emotional roller coaster and peace for the family at home as they prepare for a new family member. X
