    Well, the breast feeding (once we finnaly got there) went perfectly. So, the nursury is going to call us whenever Laurel wakes up and is hungry. Which isn't every 3 hrs since she is still on IV. They called and woke us up this morning at like 4:15 and we went up and fed... So maybe it'll start being more freqent... Deangela has been doing pretty good... This morning she started to get a head ache again, but it went away pretty quick and never got so bad as it was... Doesn't help that we didn't get up a single time last night and take the caffine pills ....

    So...what do they do about the leak?? Does it heal on its own? I'm sorry to hear she's going through that. Hope it gets better soon.

    I'm glad the breast feeding went alright. Sometimes they won't take it. Sounds like everything is progressing. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Right now she is consuming 200 mg of caffeine per 3 hrs.. That is supposed to help. We are now starting to drop down the dosses of that though. As of now it is working... But if it comes back once we drop the caffeine level or are off of it, then a blood plug will be nessasary. They take blood from your arm, and put it in your spine, it coats the area that holds spinal fluid and "plugs" the hold... Hope it doesn't come down to that. Getting stabbed in the spine once is enough i'd say!! But so far, all is good. She is now walking to the nursury... Laurel is feeding so well, they are gonna start weaning her off of the IV and move her over to mommy food. I think deangela will be discscharged today or tommorow....

    Well, aparently the nurses are going to be able to arrange for us to stay in a closed area of the hospital over the weekend. So we can keep up the every 3-4 hr. breast feeding... on this schedule we have alredy dropped her IV infusion by almost half. she should be off of the IV nutrition by tonight or early tommorow at this rate [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img] So, all is going great... I guess getting up every 3-4 hours wouldn't be too bad... If we could stay in our room. but instead we gotta walk down the halway, ring the bell to get in the nurusry, wash up then feed then walk back... so i don't wanna hear anything from new parents just having to get up and get out of bed over to the cradle.

    Ask them about doing a blood patch to DeAngela's spine.

    The reason i say this is that I when I was being diagnosed for MS, I had to have a spinal tap. In most people, the hole in your spinal cord heals right up, in some people it doesn't. I had the lumbar puncture on Thursday, and suffered with a leak until the following Tuesday..and I drank tons of coca cola as suggested. The pain DeAngela is feeling is her brain slamming into the bottom of her skull, because there's not enough fluid there to "float" her brain.

    My doctor finally admitted there was some sort of problem, and sent me back to the hospital for a blood patch.

    What they did: They numbed up the skin (OUCH)on my back where the needle for the spinal tap went in. They drew about a tablespoon of blood from my arm, made me assume a very tight fetal position on the examining table, and injected the blood back into my spinal cord, in or near the original hole.

    Yeah, the novacaine shot hurt, but it does not hurt as bad as having your brain hit the bottom of your skull everytime you sit or stand up..believe me...

    The effect was instantaneous. I sat up a minute later and was all better. I had to take it real easy for a day, as from what I understand, the blood patch basically forms a scab over the hole in your spinal cord, and you have to take it easy or the patch can become dislodged. For a few weeks afterward, when I'd stand up, I'd hear the sound of the ocean in my ears, but I was okay with that. Then the fluid re-built itself, and that went away.

    Just a suggestion, made from experience. Beautiful baby, that one! Congrats! Hope mom feels better soon!
