Preemie Life - Day 26

Cheetah just keeps growing.  She now weighs 4lbs, 6 ounces.  I want to bring her home so bad!  She's been non nutritive nursing the last three days and seems to really enjoy it.  I'm hoping switching to oral feeds will not being a problem for her.  They are going to let me start next week.  Meanwhile Brady's are still a major problem.  The nurse came in today and said, "Well you know 38 weeks is sort of the magic number.  Most preemies clear up around then."  That seems so far away.  We've been dealing with this for six or so weeks and to say I'm tired would be an understatement.  I'm tired, Dr. J is tired, the kids are all tired.  They are asking to see the baby and there is really nothing I can do to help them out there.  On the one hand I understand the hospital policy...on the other hand, it totally stinks!  Today I'm doing a small thing about the tired.  I have a massage therapist coming to the house at eight.  She'll be here for an hour and then I'm going to roll myself into bed.  I'm feeling a little guilty the rest of the family probably won't sleep nearly as well as I will tonight....
