HAPPY NEW YEAR!
The doctor on rounds this morning said that we could most likely go home tomorrow....that is Friday. We are hopeful.... but not getting our hopes up tooooo high, because you never know around here when things could change. It would be great if we could be home tomorrow, to spend some more time with our kids before they go back to school and Brian goes back to work. We shall see.....
Tyson had a good night last night. We left him at about 11:30 pm to walk down to Nathan Philips Square to ring in the New Year. It was packed there, we have never seen so many people in the same place at the same time. There were thousands of people there! Once we found a nice spot with "not too many" people around, it got tighter and tighter as midnight approached. By 11:55 pm, we were all packed in like sardines and wouldn't have been able to leave even if we wanted to! But it was nice to see the fireworks and get out into the fresh -25 degree air! It was warm while we were there but the walk home was crazy! Soooo cold! But it was an experience we won't ever forget.
Tyson was almost sleeping when we got back, he's a bit of a night owl. But then he slept till 3am and then till 6:30 am. He's getting better at sleeping and can now comfortably go 3 1/2 to 4 hours between bottles. He is now drinking 90-95 mls per feeding. He's been very happy again lately and hasn't been on any Tylenol since late last night. And the way he looks into our faces and pulls his mouth all funny tells us that he is definitely trying hard to smile, hopefully we see that first smile soon!
Hope everyone enjoyed a nice New Year's event and we hope to see you all this Sunday!
Thanks to the families that are taking care of our darling children, especially on short notice. If there's anything you need, you can stop by the house and find your way around.
Have a great day everyone!
Brian, Mel and Tyson
