First let's talk baby... [Babe] is doing great! He has no oxygen feed at all now and the only thing attached to him at this time is wires for monitoring his heart rate, breathing rate, and oxygen levels. No IV, no nasal oxygen tube...and he is eating just like a Bluhm! Sarah is not able to see him today (get to that in a minute) so I was able to spend a lot of time with him and got to feed him, take pics, giggle a little bit with him (although he was mostly asleep). [Babe] looks just like [Buddy] did.
They are prepping [Babe] for release from NICU, so we're hoping for friday??? :)
Sarah has been running a fever on and off for a few days so they a.) wont let her leave, and b.) wont let her see [Babe] until they are positive that she doesn't have an infection. She feels fine though and should be able to leave/ visit [Babe] again in the morning. Her fever broke last night just after midnight.
We just can't express enough how grateful we are for the friends we have. Thanks again to everyone for their continued support/ thoughts/ prayers.
I have attached some pictures of [Babe] that I took this morning (finally got some that didn't look so scary). He wasn't awake too much, but I think I got some goodies. If you were ever wondering how [Buddy] must have looked when he was born- this is it! LOL
Thanks again for everything, The Man
