Baby Bridgette Update #12

A bath at home.

Her stoma area is very, very tender.

Jeff and I keep wondering whether to take Bri back to Primary Children's for this or that... the list is somewhat long. Her skin is now so red and tender around her stoma that she literally screams anytime we have to touch it, and sadly, we have to touch it often. We're not sure how to make the skin breakdown stop. Any ideas, anyone?

She has her first check-up with the pediatrician on Monday where we find out if she's gained any weight this week. Hopefully the doctor will also help us determine whether she needs to return to the hospital too.

The good news is that both mom and dad got about 5 hours of sleep last night, and I got another 2 hour nap today. It's been wonderful.
