Well, the last few days have been a little hard and busy. Jaden has not been feeling well since Monday afternoon. He has not been wanting to eat much and has been pretty fussy. He also has not had many wet diapers. The home care nurse came yesturday and said stat wise he looks great and he does not look dehydrated. He had only gained 2oz from Thursday to Tuesday. That is lower then we would like to see. Last night he was really raspy sounding and still not wanting to eat. I think he may have a cold. We were not sure until last night. Hopefully that is all that is wrong and he can get better soon. I did not sleep much last night because I would listen to Jaden and make sure he was breathing and doing fine.
On top of Jaden not feeling and eating well, we ran out of his Simply Thick to thicken his milk. He had alot left when I ordered more from the company on Saturday but he was eating so much that we ran out. So luckily he is not eating well when we don't have what he needs. I had to go get rice cereal to thicken it but it does not work to well. I am also going through breast milk storage bags like water. I can not seem to keep enough at home. I go through so many because Jaden just can not keep up wih my milk supply. I give him fresh and then at the end of the night bag the rest. I bag at least 24oz at the end of each night. So we have been working on trying to find a bulk amount to order without paying a ton of money. I have a call out to a supplier to see if she can help me out. I gave Steph T. the project of finding the info and of course she found some good stuff for me to check on. Thanks Steph.
We also had an episode with Ethan last night. Ashley and I were on our way to the St Cloud Christian School graduation and Sal called saying I had to come home that Ethan would need stiches. He was playing around and hit his head on our bakers rack. We took him to the ER and he needed 5 stiches. They actually used staples. Robyn met us there so she could take Ashley for us. That was extremely helpful. Thank you Robyn!! Ethan was such a strong little guy. He was asking the nurses what their names were and telling them all kinds of stories. He loves to talk now and was doing alot of that. He was telling them how strong he was and how he likes spider, super and batman. He kept pointing out his little brother to them. It was so cute to see Ethan dealing with this and being so brave when they had to put the needle in his head to numb it. When we got to Robyn's to pick up Ashley, she had a really hard time. She was crying and telling me that I spent all of my time with Ethan and not her. She said she just wanted to cuddle with me. We did that for a very long time.
So today we are waiting for UPS to come by with our Simply Thick and I am about to take Ethan to pre-school.. I will then come home and try to work on some laundry. I do want to take a nap but am trying to get things done around here so we can go to the cabin this weekend. We will see what today brings.
