The infamous burp pose: Garrison

Sorry for the lack of updates, living in the NICU has offered me little chance to come home and check my email.

div>Garrison is doing GREAT! He has been off of his oxygen since mid-morning. He has to be off for 24 hours before they will let him go home. He is eating well and likes to be up all night :) He sleeps REALLY well during the day though!!

He had his first bath today and I know it felt so good to him. He slept for hours afterwards! He has a lot of red hair!

Last night Garrison and I were moved to a "skywalk room." It is a room for babies that are stable and will be going home shortly! What a blessing that has been. They are brand new rooms and have a bed and bathroom. One of the respiratory therapists said, "You are moving over to the the Hamptons!" She was right! Just to have a little quiet at night has been nice, plus sleeping in a recliner is not fun! The other blessing is that Fischer can be in our new room. He finally got to hold his little brother today! His eyes lit up SO big and it was a very special moment!

Dr. Kerr said we may be going home tomorrow night or Thursday morning if he continues to do well w/out oxygen. Pray that he just chugs along tonight and doesn't have to go back on O2!

Tracy, Your little boys do look alike. Such cute pictures of them together. Everything is so much better this week than last, and for that we are very thankful.
Love you, Nana

Oh, we're so thankful. We've been praying for all of you and will continue to. And I have all kinds of encouraging words to tell you, but you're probably way too tired to read them. :) I'm so glad he's doing so much better.
