Time Marches On

This week had been all about Finn! But then again, haven’t they all been for a while now?  Finn has had some sort of appointment or intervention every day this week.  On Monday, his SoonerStart therapist came out to check on him.  The last time she was here was 3 weeks ago (she comes every 2 weeks, but last Monday was a holiday), and Finn was a totally different baby than the one she saw last time!  He was awake and alert, and tolerated tummy time so well!  It was such a joy to show him off for her, and she wrote a wonderful report!  Then, he was supposed to see the pediatrician on Tuesday, but she called late in the morning on Monday to tell us NOT TO COME!  She had already diagnosed 5 cases of RSV Monday morning alone, and she didn’t want my susceptible preemie in her germ infested office. Instead, we had a consultation over the phone, I asked the questions I had, and she told me to turn his oxygen down to a flow of 1/16 of a Liter!  WOOT!  This is a big jump down!  We were at ¼, so we skipped 1/8 altogether!  We will probably turn it down again first of next week, but we are SO CLOSE to being done with it all together!  Then yesterday, the home health nurse came out for her assessment and to administer his Synagis (RSV prevention) shot.  Finn weighed in at 10 pounds 8.5 ounces, and was 21.5 inches long.  Hard to believe he is almost 5 months old, and still the size of a large newborn! LOL!  He took the shot like a champ, and pretty much slept the rest of the day!

Today, Daddy is home with us.  SUCH a welcome break!  It’s so nice to have someone to talk to and to help me get things done!  I even got to get out of the house!  I mean, it was just Wal-Mart for 6 cans of formula and some milk, but STILL!  It felt so freeing!  We are enjoying each other’s company and just chatting and watching TV and playing with Finn while doing laundry and dishes.  Such a great day for us!  After Daddy was feeding Finn, he turned the camera on and caught a Finn sneeze that I want to share:

Tomorrow, we are taking Finn on a little adventure.  It’s a Mommy adventure, too!  I hope it all goes well, and I can’t wait to share it all with you!  But, it will be a bit before I can update!  I am also meeting up with a friend tomorrow night in the City to see Mandisa and her Girls Night Live tour!  Can’t wait for some good fellowship, some GREAT music, and to WORSHIP!
