Going Well...

We took Willow to the Doctor's yesterday, and her jaundice level is dropping and as she is seeming to pick up more on the breastfeeding and she is eliminating well, the Doc gave her a clean bill of health. We have a follow up next week.

I have a follow up with the OB tomorrow. During my hospital stay, part of my incision started coming open and they had to put staples in. Nothing like watching your doctor and a nurse put novicane-like stuff into your belly and then the nurse comes over with what looks like a REGULAR old stapler--and puts five staples into you! Fun!

Things are chaotic, but starting to get into routine. Learning new things and remembering old things about newborns and Willow in specific. She is starting to be more wakeful, and I figure by the weekend we will start having the more "interesting" part of newborn-ness. Michael has been wonderful. Helping (when prompted--he is only 9) and very much into picking up Willow and holding her. He is very gentle, and last night wanted to try to do his homework while holding her (we got video!).

Husband's mother has just arrived, and hopefully that will help with some of the chaos (at least for a week).

Okay, husband is hovering over me to go get some rest...

So, I leave you with this picture (courtesy of my brother).
