An Early Morning
I went to bed just after 9:00 last night. I had planned on getting up at 5:00 AM so I could be at the hospital for Spencer's 6:00 feed. I woke up at 3:45 and was totally engorged. By the time I finished pumping and all it was 4:15. There was no point in going back to bed, so I got ready and went to the hospital to spend some time with Alex before Spencer's feeding. Alicia, Alex's nurse last night, was pushing for Vapo-Therm, and she said the doctors are right on the edge of switching him over. Spencer was a little more alert this morning when I put him to breast. After awhile he actually sucked and swallowed a few times. Then he pulled away, looked up at me, and gave me the biggest smile: "Ohhhhh, I see how this works now!" He didn't last much longer, but each time we do this he gets a little better at it.
