They decided late yesterday afternoon Ryan needed some new scenery, so we moved down the hall to the HKU. I remember this unit well because the construction men are working right outside the windows. Typical of most construction sites, they are up and moving (heavy noisy machinery) at the crack of dawn. God bless their little pea-pickin’ hearts.
Ryan is a little less fussy today but continues to be agitated if he is moved. Lying still he will sleep peacefully, but if you try to change his diaper, start his feeds, take his temperature…well, you get the picture… his little face turns purple in anger.
His skin expanders look great. As soon as I have access to my computer to upload pics I’ll fill you in (no pun intended) on how his expanders sit and how they work. He has bruising around the implant spots but that is to be expected with the trauma from surgery.
He continues to have shallow breathing so he is still on his liter and half of supplemental oxygen. Really, the only reason we are still here is because isn’t getting the oxygen he needs. Hopefully in the next day or two, his pain levels will come down allowing him to take nice deep full breaths.
Since I don’t have any exciting news for you or gorgeous pictures, I will let you in on my newest favorite product. For the men in the group, stop reading now (I mean that in the sweetest way possible). This product is for women only and will never come in handy or change your life the way it has mine.
There are several things on the market that have totally changed my life-style. One being this and the other being that, but none have changed my life as much as the Pump-Ease bra. This little baby has saved me much wasted time. And for those who know me well…I hate sitting around wasting time. It is extremely hard for me to sit and do just one thing at a time. For example, it’s not unheard of for me to eat breakfast and unload the dishwasher at the same time. Or say, bathe the girls and clean up the bathroom. Or perhaps talk on the phone and drive.
The Pump-Ease is my newest way of multi-tasking. Now, I can claim to (whisper) pump while driving….pump while making cookies….pump while making dinner…and (gasp) pump while applying makeup. However, I can safely say I have never pumped while driving and applying make-up. Whew!
I’m telling you, ladies, if you pump on a regular basis, this is the product for you! If you have one, let me know. If you plan on getting one, let me know. If you hate it….well, you can tell me that too. But I’m guessing there aren’t that many of you out there that aren’t thrilled with the Pump-Ease.
*Disclaimer – I in no way am receiving any compensation for this rave review. In fact, Pump-Ease makers don’t even know I own one. This is a fully unbiased review based on my personal experience not encouraged by the manufacturer.
