So Tuesday wasnt so bad, Alex was in pain, but had many more moments of happiness than he did yesterday.
I could hardly put him down, so if I needed to get something to help him, or feed him, or change his diaper it was with one hand. Right now hip holding is a BIG no no, so one handed tasks are hard, especially while I have all this extra in my belly. This is hard to do alone. In fact I hate it. Yesterday Alex wouldn't even sit on his bottom, I did actually manage to get him to crawl, but getting into the position and out of the position made him scream. He threw up after his first feed for reasons unknown to me, he was in so much pain that I just had to sit there with him, he and I both sitting in vomit, vomit on the floor. It was the worst day yet.
Today wont be much better. We have to drive to St. Louis (1 hour 45 min one way), just to have the bandages taken off. Most of the time circumcision care means changing gauze, and lots of antibiotic cream, but our Dr. Pee puts on a special bandage that I do not mess with, and will be taken off tomorrow. They said to give him Tylenol with codeine 30 minutes out, so I'm expecting a horrific appt. Not to mention the 1 hour 45 min drive back home.
We are then supposed to go back on Aug 14 for post op, August 25 for ENT and cardiology, and oh yeah, I'm pregnant.
