The Kovixen is at the hospital right now with a fever of 102.4. I'm at home. Alone. With the Baby. OMG.
A little bit of good fortune: We stockpiled a little milk a few weeks ago. At the time it seemed like lots of milk. But after watching Andy chug down just under half of our stockpile, it doesn't seem so big anymore.
Another bit of good fortune: Christina just came by with another 2 ounces of milk. Hopefully that'll be enough to get us through to the morning. The goal here is to avoid using formula. Although I know it won't be the end of the world if we have to resort to that.
Anyway, wish me luck. Andy went down about an hour ago. If he sticks to the schedule, I should get a good 5 hours of sleep before he wakes up!
Updated We made it through the night. Andy actually slept pretty well. We're down to our last 2 ounces, and now were waiting for some reinforcements so we can run over to the hospital to pick up some more milk. I think we might just make it!
Updated 02 May 2006 Laura's back home now. Yay! We made it through a second night. This whole thing makes me realize just how much Anderson eats. He would drain a 4 ounce bottle at each feeding, and then sort of act like he was still hungry. I couldn't give him any more, because I had to carefully ration the milk we had left! As soon as the Kovixen got home, he ate for a good 24 minutes. Much stress has been relieved. That is definitely not something I want to do again for a while. But at least now I have some idea what the Kovixen goes through while I'm at work!
