Eva has put on more weight!  Of course I am attributing this to being at home and being happy. The extra calories we are giving her in the two bottles per day are helping too. Today she was 2.26kg (4lb 15oz), an increase of 80g.  The community nurse was happy with this and felt Eva was looking great. 

Please pray for Grace and her family.  Grace has been readmitted to the Children’s Hospital with a blockage in her bowel.  It seems she may need to go for surgery tomorrow.  We know limited details at this stage.  We can only hope that she is strong and able to fight through this hump. 

Eva has been unsettled overnight the last two nights eating very frequently.  Whether she needs to eat or just likes the comfort of being at my breast I’m not sure.  Perhaps she is being at the breast more often to ask my body to make more milk.  Hopefully we will get more sleep tonight.  Luckily I am able to sleep during the day.  I am relaxing more about leaving the jobs around the house and sleeping.

Andrew is working from home tomorrow, which will be lovely.  I am looking forward to getting out of the house to do some errands.
