I haven't been on much, I can't believe that Lydia has been home for a week as of yesterday. We're getting settled in, she slept great the first few nights then screamed for hours the next 3 nights before finally falling asleep about 3AM. The last few nights have been much better, now if she's awake she's smiling and happy. I'm hoping to get her on a better schedule so she sleeps more at night but that will come with time.

We had two visits from the home health nurse this week getting her new feeding pump set up, her feeding tube isn't a big deal, just different than bottles. A visit to the GI doctor in Casper on Thursday, she wasn't happy with the car ride, we also saw the caseworker for the first follow-up visit while we were there. Then we saw her new pediatrician today and she got a couple of shots to get her caught up, she still needs a couple more but I wanted to spread them out and she seems him again next month anyway.

We've had a few visitors and been out a few times but mostly just hanging out at home playing, listening to music (she loves classical) and napping (she sleeps, I clean). She's beautiful and happy and just about perfect, not that I'm biased or anything.
