Just kicking it...

We'll likely be discharged home on Monday or Tuesday.  The plan is to do another Echo on Preston's heart on Monday or Tuesday, and as long as it shows stable or improved heart function then we'll get to go home.


Our days are filled with normal baby stuff... sleeping, eating, pooping, pumping, and breastfeeding (just started that last night...we're starting slow so that we don't overwork his heart but so far so good). We are on full-time mommy and daddy duty since yesterday. Both of P's great aunts went home for some quality R&R (hopefully) this weekend.

Please excuse the iPhone photos. My Canon is always too far away when I need it.

As for now, the docs say he's doing well and just want to see him pack on the pounds.  Today he was 6 lbs and 6 oz.  I'm so ready to get this guy home.



p.s. Mr. Field was discharged today. Yay, Field! I'm going to miss seeing his sweet smile and his sweet family.
