We have a lot to be thankful for in one week. We have come so far, but we have a long way to go. Thanks for your prayers, tears of compassion and love you have expressed. We have been overwhelmed by the response of so many. Many whom we have never met.
This is sort of a week in review for the other 6/7 of the planet not connected to facebook.
Me right before gametime. Surgery began at 6:43 am. Harrison was born at 6:51.
This is one of the first times I saw him in the NICU. Probably within 40 minutes of delivery. He has a breathing tube here. I still can't believe how small he is.
Little Man is tiny. Weighed 1# 8oz. 13 in.
The first time I got to touch him. Day 2 soothing him with compression. He gets very still and calm when the factors of the womb are reenacted. Swaddling is a big deal.
Lots of encouraging remarks by a nurse talking about his progress.
I got to hold him Day 5. Can't describe how wonderful this was.
Lots of tiny wires supporting him right now. 12 things attached to him. The major apparatas is his CPAP mask over his nose. Keeps constant pressure on his lungs. Graduated up to this from a ventilator on day 4.
Mom got to hold him for the first time on also on Day 4.
Here is his sign in his cubicle. A group of volunteers makes one for every baby.
He got the hiccups. This was really funny.
