01 Sep '04 - 217 W - + 16 - 7 We're rather annoyed right now

Alex is still up in the NICU, and will probably be there for at least a little while. The problem is that we don't really know much else right now. There has been a lack of communication between NICU and us for the last couple of days. It seems that whenever we are up there, the doctors aren't around, or are extremely busy (They had triplets and twins delivered yesterday.) So we don't know too much about the plan, when and what he's getting surgery, or even what medications he's on. We do get to talk to other doctors who aren't specifically his, and they give us innacurate or conflicting information because they are keeping track of all 30+ babies in the NICU. Dr. Palmer, who is the resident who is looking after Alex, is making his rounds right now. We called up, and talked to him just now, and scheduled a meeting at noon, so hopefully, we'll get this mess straightened out soon.

The good news is that they took out Kari's IV this morning. She's been able to get up a walk a little, but it hurts her a bit. Every time she gets up though, it gets a little bit easier. Pretty soon, she'll be doing cartwheels down the hall.
