In the step down unit

We moved to the step down unit ON TIME this morning! Hooray!

Reiss is doing really well. She is starting to be her old self – saying Hi! to all the nurses, talking to Dada and Mama, saying Moo and playing patty cake.

What Reiss is not doing well is eating and peeing. She hasn’t gone #2 since Tuesday. They gave her a stool softener to help that out. We may be going home on a diarrhetic to help her pee. Also, she has has an irregular heart beat sporadically throughout the day for a couple of days. We will be asking if this is her new normal and when to be concerned about that.

The doctor said we may be going home Monday and possibly sooner. She needs to be eating well by them, though.

Reissy likes to listen to Daddy’s pandora radio when she is upset. Preferably Luke Bryan radio!

  1. All that medicine they have to give her slows down her digestive responses. 😦 I am glad to hear she is bouncing back. She’ll be up to snuff in no time! Prayers and love…XO
