Just a quick one for now. We called the NICU and Gaines is stable. We are getting ready to go down and see him soon. I need eat breakfast first because I'm still not up to full strength. So after breakfast arrives and a quick shower we'll head down for a hopefully a detailed report. One good thing is that at our 6:00 visit last night, I summarized the doctors report with so, he's still stable...and he said, I think he's doing better. So awesome to hear but now I am bracing myself for a letdown. Please remember, he's still considered critical and has a LOT of help breathing so he still needs tons of prayers...especially for those little lungs. Hopefully I'll have a better report soon.
Oh, I got to change his diaper yesterday afternoon. My mom and I went in and the nurse was just about to do it so she let me. I was so nervous! I guess I did an ok job. I mean first of all he's tiny and so fragile right now but I also had to do it through the isolet arm holes so that made it tough too. At any rate, it felt awesome to be able to do something "normal" for my child.
Today is a bittersweet day. After 39 days here, I'm getting out. I'm so excited to breathe fresh air and feel the sun on my face but I HATE the thought of being away from Gaines. Please pray for our comfort as we walk away from this hospital and our tiny baby.
Love to all,
