Everything went really well at first. Dylan took 32 then 42, then 45 with an extra 10 an hour later. He took between 30 and 40 overnight and in the morning. That, according to the doctor, was treading water.
Then I got there and he just pooped out. He took 28 for me at 11:15, then like 30 total for the rest of the day. That's not enough to keep the tube away. He even had a dry diaper : (.
I think it's just that he had a ton of energy yesterday from all of his calories, but didn't eat enough to sustain his energy level.
The day was really emotionally exhausting, but I'm ready to get the tube back in so he can get back to eating these new great amounts. I know he has the ability to eat. I even heard a new hungry cry which was kind of cool. But he's definitely not quite ready yet.
I've decided to skip my BFF's Super Bowl party tomorrow. I could handle baby showers while struggling to get pregnant, but I don't want to deal with people's questions tomorrow. Or watch them fawn over her perfect month old daughter. Love her. But just don't want to deal.
I spent 11 hours at the hospital yesterday and 6 today so I'm taking a break tonight and will still go watch the Super Bowl somewhere tomorrow...
I really appreciate knowing that Dylan has so much support out there!
