he's doing very well from what they tell us. he's breathing on his own and mostly tolerating his feedings well. i'm feeling very sick today so i didn't go to the hospital, which i feel bad about, but my husband just left to see him and my mom is meeting him there.
i feel guilty whenever i don't go, but my husband will usually go without me so at least one of us is seeing him. and luckily the milk i pumped is getting delivered so he'll have that. HOPEFULLY hubby will remember to pick up more bottles from there since i only have one left!
thank you all SO much for your kind words and comments! it's so wonderful that complete strangers can bond with each other on a forum like this because of similar experiences. i am a member of a pre-eclampsia forum as well as this one, and i don't think i could have made it through this pregnancy and kept my sanity without both of these sites! i never expected to get such amazing, sincere support from people i didn't even know, but that is what i have experienced on both sites and i am incredibly grateful.
i am looking forward to hopefully helping other people through their experiences with HG and PIH/pre-e now that i have gone through them. i have had such a wonderful experience receiving support so far, and i've gotten even more from fellow NICU and preemie moms. it's a great addition to the support i'm getting from my family and friends offline, especially since most of them have not experienced all the same things.
the internet is a wonderful place sometimes!
