Very quick newsflash:
Eleanor Rose, 6lb 13oz, born Tuesday 7th October at 7.35AM after a 12-hour-ish labour that went very smoothly.
She has a nasal obstruction which means that breathing is hard for her and she can't feed. So we went in an ambulance to Shrewsbury hospital at 3AM on Wednesday morning and she has been in an incubator since then.
She has a shadow on her lungs (speckling) that could be either fluid (which will be naturally reabsorbed) or infection - so they are giving her antibiotics via a drip, just in case.
She has a tube in to her tummy and they have tried to feed her through it; but last night she was a bit sick, so they stopped. They are trying again this afternoon. She is getting everything she needs through the drip, though.
We have been staying at the hospital and have briefly come home for a change of clothes and to see Leo - Ma and sister Natalie have come up to care for him.
I'm fine, physically. Mentally, obviously, we are both slightly basket-casey.
I'll keep you posted.
