Another day in the NICU. I left work early at 2 to meet with someone who helps fill out Medicaid paperwork. She ended up leaving the paperwork with me and then didn't come back before her shift ended, so I brought it home. I hope to get it to her next week sometime.
I got to hold Riley again tonight and I got a picture of her with her eyes open :) As always she satted very high while I held her until right at the end, just after an hour was up when she started low satting instead. I think it is her way of saying she's done for now...
It is very sweet and beautiful to hold her, but she kind of reminds me of a baby squirrel. They asked if I wanted to get her out of the incubator myself and I declined. I'd rather they get her, all her tubes and wires out and bring her to me, rather than having me try to get her out myself.
In fun news, I took her temp and changed her diaper. The diaper change was a bit of a saga. It took 3 diapers to get her in one clean diaper. She pooped on my hands twice. I was talking to another preemie mom the other day and she mentioned how strange it was that the baby didn't even have a butt crack yet... I hadn't noticed before, but that is totally true... there isn't one. The better to poop on me, I guess...
