Matthew came home yesterday just after his 3 week birthday!
It's wonderful to have him with us all the time, and such a relief not having to travel through to the hospital a couple of times a day. Those incredible sisters and nurses in the neonatal ICU really grew attached to MJ and one day we were greatly amused when we read in the (usually sterile and boring) nursing process "Took feeds adequately, observations normal, he's so cute - he's our favourite."
Feeding remains a challenge, but the nasogastric tube is out and there is definite progress.We have also learned that babies are not machines - what works one time will not necessarily work the next!
Thanks to all for their messages of support, visits and meals - we really appreciate it.
Love Lloyd, Jacqui and MJ
