For those of you that read this that do not live in north Texas, flu season has been INSANE in these parts. We've had deaths and I cannot tell you how many people I know that got a flu shot and have gotten the flu. As a parent of a baby that has chronic lung disease and was a preemie, I'm
Almost all the offices we've been to have been awesome about us not waiting in the waiting room. One office is always like "I'll see if there is a room" and we just get called back like normal... so annoying. I will NOT let that happen again. The last time a young girl came up and asked if she could see my baby. How awkward is that to tell a kid, "no"??? And then her much younger siblings all came over to see too and started asking me about his feeding pump. I had purposely gone the opposite side of the waiting room to prevent this... Again, it won't happen again. My nice, kind and patient voice will be heard.
With this, we have obviously been in our RSV/Flu isolation/lockdown. People have stopped inviting us to things or including us on group events... it's kind of lonely not even knowing what's going on out there with everyone. I miss church and hanging out and I really miss going out to eat. We got to on my birthday before the Texas A&M game (Whoop!). That was awesome! Please don't forget about us friends. Please don't count us out. We'll be back in the game come spring. We miss everyone so much. I cannot wait for all 3 of us to go somewhere together, as a family that isn't a medical establishment. This is also kind of scary to be honest. To be allowed all of a sudden to be out in public with Wyatt. That's a complete 180 from what we've been trained so far. The only thing I can think of to compare it to (forgive me it's late) is not being allowed to have sex before you're married and then all of a sudden it's your wedding night and it's all good and dandy. Wow! Big change. haha.
Here are some pics of the cutie -pa-tootie... :-)
If only he would actually drink from that bottle... Maybe one of these days?!? **praying**
Taken this morning during out bath! He brings me so much joy!
Tried to take our cannula off for a few hours and give those sweet cheeks a rest from the sticky dots.
