Going Home

Woo hoo it's time to bust out! Today being Sunday things did not move too fast. The pediatrician came by pretty early to clear Gus, but I had to wait for my doc to clear me. My BP has been super, almost low even, so my dose of BP drugs is cut in half.

This AM Gus weighed 6 pounds 1 ounce. The pediatrician was somewhat concerned so she asked us to make an appointment for Tuesday. By discharge time he was down to 5 pounds 14 ounces--which officially puts him at 10% loss. SO...they sent us home with some formula. She wants Gus to nurse until he's done and then get a bottle of an ounce, ounce and a half of formula until he plumps up his weight. Earlier he had 1/2 an ounce of ready made Similac---gross smelling swill! Since then I think my milk is starting to come in. So we're going to wait until morning to reweigh and see if we can skip the formula. Either way we go to the Pediatrician on Tuesday and I have afollowup BP appointment with my doc the same day.

Mommy and Gus ready to go!

So we finally headed out. We went to my pharmacy sort of on the way home---closed at 6pm on Sunday. Ugh...we tried 2 more before we headed back to Silverdale --drove passed the hospital to get to the 24 hour Walgreens. we were in the car forever it seemed. And Gus peed through his cute baseball suit.
Chillin' with Dad.

Finally we made it home. Gus ate and Mommy and Gus napped while Reese and Daddy watered the outdoor plants. Reese thinks Gus is hilarious. He laughed and laughed while holding Gus. Not sure if Reese thinks he looks funny or if they have an inside joke on mom and dad.
