Baby Steps

Today was a good day. 


When I got to the hospital this morning, James was WIDE awake and acting a little "hangry". (Who could blame him? He hadn't eaten since Monday afternoon!) During rounds just an hour earlier his doctor decided to take him off of the oxygen machine, and had one of his IV's taken out. But the best news of all... He was going to get to try to eat today! 


About 11 this morning, his nurse started getting him ready to eat, and by 2 I got to give him his first bottle. He has since had a second bottle, and seems to be tolerating both of them well.


Now that he's got his bowels working properly, James is not wasting anytime with his recovery. He wants to eat, sleep, poop, and pee just like a healthy baby his age should. He seems bound and determined to get home as soon as possible. He was only home for 23 hours before all of this, so he never had a chance to unpack his bags and settle in. 


As for mom and dad, we are relieved to have gotten over this first hurdle. Everyday he gets a little better, and for that we are extremely grateful.

  1. He probably knows people will quit poking him when he leaves. Poor kid just wants some mommy and daddy time without the nurses.
