Enjoying Home

We've been home for 3 days now, and it feels so good! There's something almost theraputic about walking into your home again after a few weeks away. Even though we're all still exhausted, its so much easier to handle now that we're back. I'm loving my bed (even though we're not sleeping much) after sleeping at the hospital for the last few weeks!

Teagan had a great day today. Her nights and days are still all mixed up from being at the hospital (I feel like I took home a newborn!) but other than that she's good. She's happy most of the day but tires pretty quickly. Usually after about 1 1/2- 2 hours she's ready for a nap! I started some baby food with her and so far she seems to like it ok. Nothing that pertains to food excites her too much, but she swallowed what I gave her so I'm counting it as a success! She is still relying pretty much solely on the NG tube. She's less interested now in the bottle then she was post norwood! (If anyone has any suggestions that has been there, I'm open!) Ususally she eats 1/2 oz or so and decides to chew on the bottle after that. Sometimes she won't swallow any but she lets her mouth fill up then blows spit/milk bubbles letting it run down her chin... But even if she has to use the NG until her teeth come in and she's eating regular food, I don't care! Thats the least of my worries now, I'm just glad we're home and she's smiling!

Its so great to spend some real time with Gav again. He always seems to get so big while I'm gone! He's been up to his usual antics and keeping me pretty entertained. His uncle Cayle and aunt Loren got him a Lightening McQueen race car driver suit that he's been wearing all the time. He wears it out to dinner and wants to sleep in it! Here's Gav in his race car suit....

He loves to play 'baby' and get in Teag's walker..... I can't believe he fits!

Teagan looks great! I'm with you on the eating issue.. Owen ate post Norwood but post Glenn has been BLAH! I hope you have an easier time. Feeding therapy ASAP is my only suggestion!!

So happy that you are home and things are going to get easier!!

How can i remove windows xp from my laptop and reinstall windows Me -the laptops indigenous software?
I suffer with recently bought a in use accustomed to laptop that is old. The person I had bought it from had installed windows xp on it, even yet it originally came with windows Me. I want to remove the windows xp because it runs slows on the laptop because it takes up more tribute than the windows Me would. Also I need to remove windows xp because it is an proscribed copy. So when I tried to run updates on it, windows would not set up updates because the windows xp is not genuine. [URL=http://yiurhpf.angelfire.com]abalone bead strands[/URL]
