So the doctor comfirmed today that we're gonna go through with the whole 10-day treatment for D. The good thing is they're counting the begining from Wednesday (he got his first antibiotic dose late that night after getting admitted), so we're already at day 6. We should get to go home Friday after they give him his last dose. Woot! Just a few more days.
I'm really really hoping we get to keep our room to ourselves till then. This morning a second baby moved into the room next to ours, so I guess they might be getting a bit more full. If we get a roomie that means they take away me bed and I have to sleep on the recliner chair. Boo. So we'll just keep our fingers crossed.
D slept really well last night, which I think he needed. He's seemed much better today. I swaddled him up and that seemed to help him, I also am realizing that perhaps he sometimes wakes up before he's ready and I've assumed he needed to eat then but instead could go back to sleep (he did this this morning, he woke up after napping for an hour, and after letting him suck on my pinkie for a few minutes he went back to sleep for 2 more hours). We'll see if we can keep this good napping karma up.
Susan brought a classical piano CD for babies, which is great b/c I've been wanting to find something like this. I played it for D last night, and as I listened to the concertos I realized that I recognized many of them from childhood, when my mom would play them on her grand piano. I do believe one of the reasons I love the sound of the piano so much is from listening to her play as I grew up, and it made me a bit sad that I don't play and instrument that D can remember as part of his infancy (and knowing me I probably won't take the time to learn either). Regardless, it was a nice trip down memory lane.
BTW I'd like to know who decided it would be a brilliant idea to switch the placement of the z and y keys on the keyboard. Is this another one of these American "we wanna be different" things, like not using the metric system?
