Today was a good, but long day. Greyson’s Grandma Terry flew in early this morning to spend some quality New Years Day time with Greyson. He enjoyed her holding him and we all had a great time hanging out with our little guy. Unfortunately just as fast as it started it was time to take her back to the airport as she only flew in for the day. Greyson was very alert for a lot of the time which always makes for a great visit.
Apparently all was not well in Greyson’s life prior to our visit however. His gas last night was bad, c02 of 79, and apparantly he had at least two significant episodes where he de-satted, one of which included a bardy (when his heart rate drops too low). The Dr. wasn’t to concerned about all that but did feel that his blood gas indicated that Greyson is not able to skip a day of DEX at this point so he is back to getting it once a day. Hopefully this will help him get back on track. Can I just tell you how excited we will be to have these issues behind us!??
Greyson is now the size of a newborn (hard to believe!) and is weighing in at 6 pounds 11 ounces. Last night at a New Years Eve party one of our friends heard how big he was and said, “why don’t you bring him home if he’s that big!” “Well, he can’t breath!” was our reply. Of course he can breath, he just needs quite a bit of help right now. Anyway Stacy and I ended the day after dropping of my mom by beginning his baby shower registery at Target. We are scrambling to be ready for the baby shower that the church is throwing for us January 15. In the midst of all the de-sats and poor gas numbers it was fun to spend some time planning for him to come home.
