Baby boy is doing well this morning. He was a little spitty with his last feeding but overall has done better. His jaundice is much improved and they have removed one light and reduced the intensity of the remaining two. The pediatrician (who is great, by the way!) wants to keep him until tomorrow. So hopefully he will be released tomorrow morning and paperwork can start. Four days has felt like a week or more. His bruising is improving which is good - he has had some hemorrhage in his eyes do to the traumatic birth.
The missing document is being tracked down. Please continue to pray that they will be willing to overnight what we need. We need it ASAP. Papers are scheduled to be signed tonight.
We are loving taking care of him and can't wait for him to be free of all the cords! They did take out the IV this morning and the monitors are off but the cords have not been removed. He LOVES being held and is responding to our voices and touch. He looks up at us and sometimes even smiles (involuntary, I'm sure, but I'll take it!). He has stolen our hearts. We can't wait to introduce him to Calvin & Patrick and to be a family of 5! We continue to hope and pray that all will work out. Maybe the next post will be pictures, stats, and name???? I hope so!
