9 months I know it's worth it but can I....

So 2 days ago I got out of the hospital after being there for a few days. I couldn't really pump so I lost a lot and I mean a lot of my supply. I balled my eyes out when I found out that my 9 month old had formula for the first time. I was on the phone with him and she hated it. So he used my freezer supply. (was a full weeks worth.) I was so proud of that and still am. He wanted to see how she would do. In short he didn't think I would want to pump any more when I got out. Well he was wrong. But now I am pumping 2OZ... Gosh 2OZ in a day. So it is starting to very slowly become more. But I wanted to know how long other moms thought this would take. Not that it matters. But when she was born a 38 weeks she had premature lungs. Docs still don't know why. But she was in the NICU for over a week. Watching her in there I knew I had to give her the best and I will. Has anyone ever delt with anything like this? O I'm also pumping every 2hrs for 20mins and power pumping before I go to bed. Thanks
