Depressed mommy..

I'm in the hospital and Aidyn is still in the N.I.C.U. He had some issues adjusting when he first got here. I'm having a hard time coping without him. I didn't hold him until late at night the day he was born. I can't sleep and I wake up sad, and the nurses don't understand my compulsion to be near him as much as I can. He is so precious. He is taking a small amount of formula in a bottle that I have been giving him. If he keeps this up and tolerates it well, he may be home late next week.

I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I'm so sorry that Aidyn is in the N.I.C.U. It's got to be very hard to deal with.

Congratulations on the birth of Aidyn. I'm sorry that he is still in the NICU, it is incredibly hard not to be with your baby after they are born. I can only imagine how hard it must after you lost your precious Zoe Beth.
I hope that he keeps on tolerating his feeds well and comes home to you as soon as possible. x

Congrats on the baby, Lindsay. Can't wait till you can post some pictures. I'm sure he's beautiful. :)
Hope he is better today and home sooner than you think. Thinking of you.

I've been blog stalking you. :) Glad to know Aidyn is here and that you made it through the surgery. I'm sorry you are seperated from him. It is very likely that I will deliver Nora early and tge fact that I will be seperated from her is devastating. I hope he's back with you very soon. Hang in there! You did great!

Lindsay I have been waiting and waiting to hear that Aidyn had been born and that you were alright. I'm sorry you're having a setback, I know how devastating it is to be separated from your baby while they are in the NICU. Praying for his speedy recovery and yours...soon you'll be home with that precious baby and you won't have to be away from him anymore!!! Love you

As Bree said... I've been blog stalking you too! So glad to hear of Aidyn's arrival. I totally understand your wanting to be near him at all times. Maddie went straight to the NICU too... it was incredibly hard and disturbing, but it was the best thing for her in the end. Praying for you and Aidyn...xx
