Hopefully the first picture wasn't too disturbing, she was still a little new to the world. My Mom says Sylvia will be mad at her Daddy for posting that one, but I think she will love it!
Here is a picture from last night. You will notice the IV and the monitors on her. Since Jamie's water had been ruptured for so long, there is some concern for infection not only in Jamie, but also in Sylvia. They are both on antibiotics until we have more tests complete. We should know more tonight, but the final cultures will not be back until Monday night sometime. Because of these concerns, she has to stay in the 'Special Care Nursery' until the tests come back clear. Because of this, I am asking that people please hold off on visiting baby Sylvia. We hope to be able to take her home Monday night, but we will update when we know more.
Jamie and I are beginning our training on being new parents. We spent about an hour with Sylvia this morning working on feeding. It could have been a little better, but we are going to keep practicing. It is a little tricky with all of the tubes hanging out of both of them!
Great news... The RN just came in and it sounds like Jamie will be able to disconnect the portable IV cart that she has been wheeling around. This will make going to the bathroom a 5 minute job instead of a 10 minute job!
That is about it for now, we will update again later.
