Day 4 - NICU

Sunday, May 17th
Michael and I were finally able to get some sleep, and thankfully in the same bed and not on a hospital bed and a cot! We went to see London around 2:30 and the nurse laughed as she heard us come in and say "Is that our baby??" He looked dramatically better and was no longer on the heating bed! They told us again he kept making major progress. They hadn't fed him through his tube all day, and his rash had improved a lot! They were a little worried about his color (jaundice) but when they tried to put him under the lights it made him too hot and with his rash they figured they would just wait to put him under since he was borderline anyway. He was more alert this time around and even did a little crying for everyone but me...score one for the mom! :)
He also passed his hearing test :)




Renee got to hold him for a bit too :)
Mike's dad held him for about 30 seconds...as soon as he started to cry he handed him back to Mike! haha
