So there I am! Living it up in my 30-somethings with a ridiculously hot hubby, 3 seriously outgoing matter-of-fact smart beautiful kids, a cat named Roxii that just won't quit, 2 chihuahuas named Lokii (what was I thinking) and Brodii who don't understand the concept of pee outside.

I'm a strongly opinionated, outspoken, inappropriate and absolutely unapologetic chick going through this thing called life and trying to do it with my sanity intact. So far, this isn't working out so well!

Follow me as I confession myself straight to the LCBO. My rants, my way...you've been warned ;) Xo

The 2 day update...

| No comment
So for those of you that follow along rather closely you will know that tonight was weigh in night!!! I like being there every other night at the 8pm time as I get to watch her get her bath and get weighed and all that fun stuff.

*another drum roll please*

Kenzi is up to 1121g, just 129g from 1250g...and you know what 1250g means right? Yup that's right, she's coming home to Oakville. Not literally home, just home as in OTMH. She gained 58g over the last 2 days which all converted means 2lbs 7.5oz, so just .5oz shy of 2.5lbs!

With this gain she's managed to close her IUGR gap by another half day. So 3.5 days from her on track dates and overall she's 3 weeks 6.5 days behind in regards to her gestational age vs her IUGR age. Gradual process but we are SO proud of her and her "attitude" so far. She's impressing everyone around her and is on the right track. Basically 3 weeks in a level 3 facility and on to a level 2 she'll be going.

She still has a few dips (the apnea/bradycardia) but she still pulls herself out of it. The nurse had to 'remind' her once today which has been very rare, next to nil, over the last 1.5 weeks so we aren't too worried about it. I'll of course check in throughout the day tomorrow before I go in to see how she in tolerating everything.

Yesterday's update was pretty boring (again we LIKE that). The only thing to report was that she was up to 13ml's of formula every 2 hours. Now today (earlier) they were rotating 13ml's and 14ml's and now tonight it's just straight 14ml's which to my knowledge she's handling very well.

Today was more talk of her moving on to a level 2 facility. The nurse said maybe even the end of the week but we are thinking more beginning of next week providing she keeps herself nice and healthy between now and then.

Tomorrow I should be going to visit her around 6.30/7pm'ish and hopefully Roger will drop in after that for cuddle time.

So the gram countdown is on...129g it is...
