Daddy woke up with a cold sore today and so he wasn’t allowed to visit. It was the first day since we were born that he hasn’t visited. Mummy says he’s been sad all day. The nurse says mummy and daddy have done really well to go 6 weeks with all the stress of us two monkeys without getting run down or poorly yet.
Mummy visited with Nannie Hardy so that she wasn’t flying competely solo.
When they arrived they looked straight in Austins incubator to see if his swelling had gone down from having the Cpap hat and pipes off overnight. Nannie was so pleased to see his beautiful face…
The nurse gave mum an update. Austin was doing so well on his high flow that he is already being moved onto high flow 4 and they are going to put me (Rory) on low flow….mummy was over the moon. That means I’m almost ready for special care because I’m too clever for high dependency now, I just need to put a bit more weight on before I’m allowed to go. And when in special care, I’m allowed to learn to feed from a bottle and live in a cot rather than an incubator. Fingers crossed for weigh in tomorrow, although that means we might be split up for a bit before Austin catches up.
Mummy asked if she could have kangaroo care with us both together…
Before the nurse put us back, mummy asked if the nurse could lay us on Mummys knee side by side so that mummy can look at us. Mummy said to the nurse that this is the kind of stuff normal mummies take for granted.
Mummy took a picture of one of us, but doesn’t know who it is now…..we look the same….can you help?
