Thank you all for your prayers!! They were MIGHTILY felt!! Everything seems so much better when I am in the presence of my son:) He is beautiful and soft and he smells good. Ahhhhhhh.... Also thank you for the comments. It really helps to know that you guys are out there reading this!
Okay, but seriously he is keeping his formula down that they are giving him via the GI tube which is better than yesterday. Today he also received milk from me which hopefully will help his digestion. We got to speak to the hematologist again and he did not seem alarmed about his drop in platelets. He just reassured us that some babies take longer to react then others. Part of this is because we don't know how many of my antibodies originally got into his little system (that can be different for every baby). Also, the IVIG treatment that he received yesterday was smaller than it was suppose to be (miscommunication?), but that has been rectified and he got a normal treatment this morning. His platelets will be checked again tomorrow. If he does not react to the treatments as expected over the next few days, he will get a transfusion of my platelets (which we know my antibodies will not attack).
All the nurses just keep commenting on how good he looks and how cute he is. Today I started to read him "his" psalm. We only got to verse 9 (it is a really long psalm and he is a really little baby). The hardest part of the day is coming home without him. I feel as though I have left a body part at the hospital. But I KNOW that he is well taken care of, both by the almighty hands of God and by the staff at Children's.
