Day 82: December 7

December 8, 2010

A pretty quiet day in the NICU.  Sam was a little less alert than yesterday, but that might have to do with the fact that he is back on full feeds.  He also was moved out of the isolette at around midnight and put into an open crib.  That lasted until about 7 pm today when he was moved from the regular open crib to the heated open crib- what Peter calls the "Easy Bake Oven".  Overall, he is doing much better.

Irene asked me to take her most prized stuff animal to the hospital today to meet Sam and all of his nurses.  What follows is a chronicle of Sparkles visit:

Have not read for a few weeks and was upset to see you are back on a rollacoster of what if’s and worry.
Much love
