A Turn in the Right Direction

This morning we learned that Duncan's abdomen is beginning to return to its normal size!! So we have rounded the corner towards recovery from this strange little inflammation problem. What a relief.

Today's visit was much more comforting than yesterday's. His coloring looks MUCH better and his overall disposition seemed more relaxed (yesterday he was irritable and fussy - the doctor had said that it could have been due to discomfort in his tummy - it killed us to think he might be in pain and there was nothing we could do about it!). So he slept while we visited. And we each held him too. His oxygen saturation and respiratory levels were better as well.

So, we'll take it!

Jackson is developing quite the personality now as well. His first two and a half weeks of life had been pretty mellow. He ate, pooped, and slept... the latter of which took up at least 22 hours of the day. You hardly heard any peeps out of him. In fact, he was pretty boring! But now he lets us know when he is hungry - the lungs are now working! And he despises diaper changes (he's modest). Wake time is much more frequent and longer lasting, and we love it!

Sorry about no picture recently... I'm working on getting back on top of that!
