December 11, 2003

The spare room is finally becoming Jacob's room. I have finished painting the walls (white) and will finish the inside of the closet this weekend. Last night Brett put together the crib and nursery cart. I have washed some of the bedding and will wash his clothes this weekend. We've checked out dressers at Target and Wal-Mart but so far haven't bought one. We need to though because we have tons of clothes for him! I will have to return some because they are too small! I knew we shouldn't have bought so much preemie stuff! 

The Fighter is doing well this morning. Dr. Roan has returned from a few days off so hopefully I will get the scoop on things such as when he will come out of isolation and how much longer he'll have to be in the NICU. Not that the other Dr's couldn't tell me those things, but Dr. Roan is his Neonatologist so he makes the major decisions. They may be consulting with a speech therapist to help in the bottle-feeding efforts. Last night Jacob took over half a bottle for the nurse but he isn't being consistent enough and may need a little help. He has a large indentation in his pallet from the ventilator tube being in so long, and that may be contributing to the problem.
