Two Weeks Post Op
Our sweet girl is 2 weeks, 5 days old, and is 2 weeks post op. Can you tell this baby girl had neurosurgery 2 weeks ago??! She is our greatest blessing, and we are so thankful for her!
These days, she eats 3 ounces every 3 hours. She sleeps pretty good, and is most awake and alert at night. She sometimes requires a diaper change both before and after she eats! She continues to hate having her diaper changed. She is too big for newborn size diapers, but she is too small for size 1s. So, we have to change everything a lot! She also spits up/vomits a lot. Her incision continues to heal well. We continue to follow our doctor's infection control orders...we stay home, and can have very few well adult visitors.
We have appointments with our palliative care doctor, Dr. B, and our pediatrician, Dr M this week. We have an appointment with our neurosurgeon, Dr. P next week, and we have an appointment with the pediatric audiology clinic the next week.
"From the fullness of grace we have received one blessing after another..."
