On Monday they did a little test on the Happy Baby and found that he has some sort of defect with his kidneys. The doctors want him to go on antibiotics indefinitely.
On top of that, he has not been taking his bottles very well. Our doctor this week informed us that although he is gaining weight most days, it is not enough. They keep adding increasing amounts of formula to my breast milk to try to compensate for his lack of volume.
It’s looking like if we want him to come home, he will be coming home with a feeding tube.
And on top of that, I am sick! 102 degree fever preventing me from seeing my little boy this weekend.
The Happy Hubby and I needed something to lighten things up.
I’ve been doing research on a post about fun things you can do with your kids on a long road trip. One of the ideas was to give them a roll of aluminum foil and let their creative juices sculpt the foil into something awesome.
(I realize that this might look like a different kind of bottle. No, the stresses of the last couple of days have not driven me to drink. This bottle is purely full of milk!)
I totally recommend this simple at-home date idea for you and your Happy Hubby. It’s a great stress reliever. Feel free to share your creations on Happy Home Fairy’s Facebook page!
Please keep praying, sweet friends. As much as I didn’t want to come home with a feeding tube, I’d really like to just be fully surrendered to whatever God wants. And as much as I know He knows what’s best, it’s super hard to let go of some of the things I thought were best.
Happy Tin Foil Date-ing!
