Getting Acquainted

Hailey has been home for three days now and we are finally getting used to having her around. Natasha, the hyper-active dalmation, is very protective of her. When Hailey cries or grunts she paces until we attend to her. When new people come to the house to visit with Hailey, she stays close by ready to lend a hand, or paw as it is.

For the first few days Brianna and I would work in 8 hour shifts. Each of us would stay awake staring at Hailey in her bassinet ready to attend to every need. It took a little while for us to decide that she will in fact be OK. We know now that she will keep breathing. For the most part, all she does is sleep and eat.

The sleeping part she has down. It only took a little parent training. Hailey is used to sleeping in a very loud and fully lighted NICU environment. She also likes sleeping in an inclined position. So we raised the head of her bassinet and found a radio that we could tune to a classical music station for background noise. The TV also works well for background noise but at 4:00 a.m. it seems like every channel is carrying the same infomercial for the Juice Guy’s Juice Master II and I just don’t want to hear about the benefits of drinking parsley juice any more.

HD Update USPS delivered the HD to Western Digital’s Irvine, CA office on January 29, 2003 at 10:46 a.m. The WD RMA website hasn’t acknowledged receipt yet.
