I got a text with this picture on the way home from church! My heart just melted. They finally got to hold him. This is Mommy Beth. She’s such a good mommy and isn’t he just the most beautiful baby you’ve ever seen? before Joel got to see this picture he said, “oh, come on, are you sure your not a little prejudiced”. Okay, so he’s the 6th cutest baby ever!
So, they took him off the oscillating ventilator (sp?) and put him on a regular ventilator…a step in the right direction. He requires no oxygen, only room air.
He is taking 15 oz at every feeding—by feeding tube.
You’ll notice he still has swollen cheeks/neck…it happened since birth so they’re pretty sure it will correct itself.
You can see his little chest tube there on the left side of his chest (my right) you can see the green cannula going in to drain the air around his lungs. His x-rays are looking good.
Oh, he does have an inguinal hernia, not sure when they will want to repair that.
Okay, off to order my new stuff from the stamping catalog! Yes, I cannot give that up.
