Thank you all for your comments and prayers during Nathan's hospital stay. We are HOME! And he is doing very well. We are still adjusting into a new routine, of weighing him daily, checking his blood pressure, and giving him (only one!) medication, as well as needing to go to pediatrician and kidney specialist visits.
(As a humorous aside, at his kidney specialist appointment yesterday the nurse loved my sling and I shared one of my babywearing info cards with her... she was interested in making a sling for a niece, I believe! I was happy that she was interested and more than happy to share a card with her that had some pattern links and my contact info.) :)
Anyway, his wonderful pediatric kidney specialist has repeatedly assured us that he is extremely happy with Nathan's progress, that he thinks that he will have no lasting damage, and that he is recovering quickly. We are going to have to have his peritoneal dialysis tube removal surgery in a few weeks, and then I know that I will feel like we're getting back to normal.
In the meantime, as things in our life get back to normal, so will things around here. So stay tuned for posts on babywearing the hospitalized child, babywearing the sibling of a hospitalized child, and babywearing ages and stages!
Happy babywearing, all!
