Mr. Poop

Yesterday morning, Kc and I both left the hospital and headed off to work. Lindsay came to watch Noah, like she does every Friday. Noah loves to spend time with Lindsay and decided to save his first poop for her. Right around lunch time, Lindsay noticed a very familiar smell that was completely new to Mr. Man. She checked his daiper, and sure enough...his first poops. Noah was a bit puzzled as to why Lindsay was jumping up and down, clapping, and taking picutures. "It's just poop", he thought.
Noah was kind enough to save another poopy diaper for his Mama later that night. Because he's had two poopy diapers, Dr. Hodge agreed that he can slowly start back on formula. We are working our way from two ounces per feed back up to his normal six ounces. Hopefully we'll be there tomorrow morning and then we'll be able to go home.
Noah Man has lost almost two pounds over the last week. He was put on a Pedialyte only diet three full days before his colostomy closure surgery and was NPO (nothing to eat or drink) five hours before the procedure. Since the surgery has been complete, Noah has only had IV fluids and a few ounces of Pedialyte. That's seven full days without any formula. It's amazing what two pounds looks like on a little baby. Noah's rolls and dimples are almost nonexistant. His fat little feet are not so fat. We've got a lot of work to do to pack the pounds back on. Here's to the future of feeding and pooping! Away we go!

  1. Yay for poop! I've been wondering what Noah would think of this whole new experience :-) It's great to hear that everything seems to be going as planned and expected. I will pray that you are all sleeping in your own beds tomorrow night and that the pounds come back quickly for your Mr. Man. Clearing this hurdle is VERY exciting!!
