Today I made a second visit to the NICU to see beautiful Addah. I wasn’t able stay for long, because I had only been allowed out of bed for a couple of hours, and I was still in a great deal of pain. I am pumping breast milk every 1-1½ hours for Addah since she has to be tube fed for now. She’s not had a drop of anything but my breast milk thus far and I intend to keep it that way. Breastfeeding is the last thing I feel that I have any control over and I will NOT allow that plan to be messed with.

I'm Heather, a married mama of two teen girls, a stillborn baby girl (7/1/12), and a sweet and wild preschool girl (4/2/14). I've been blogging at The Destiny Manifest since 2001. I like to write about appreciating all of the beautiful little things that surround us, particularly in the face of grief, infant loss and mental health issues. Every day is an adventure!
