Ginny is having the procedure to enlarge her ASD as I am writing this. We shall see how she does.
We are planning on breastfeeding Ginny. Rachel has been faithfully pumping since she delivered Ginny on Friday. The milk is stored here in the NICU in the freezer, and whenever Ginny decides to get well enough to eat, they will feed it to her through a tube until she is well enough to take it from the tap. Rachel tells me that pumping is considerably less than comfortable. She discussed some of her discomfort with the lactation consultant here at the hospital. (Yes, Matt Z, that is a real job. No, you can not apply for it.) The lactation consultant suggested that olive oil might take away some of the discomfort. She also figured out how to engineer a "hands free device" using one of her old sports bras. "This is great!" she says, "Now I can check my email and surf the internet while I'm pumping."
Each morning when I get out of bed, the second thing I do is go to the computer to read my newspapers and see what happened in the world while I was asleep. This morning when I got up, there was a cruet of olive oil right next to the keyboard... so when you come over to our house for dinner - be careful which salad dressing you ask for.
