Louis in Dreamland

Louis' spent the whole day on the cannula, no CPAP. They swapped out the his oral feeding tube for a tube to his stomach through his nose. Hopefully he won't have to go back on CPAP tonight. He's had a long day, and needs his sleep.

Amy and I are having a rough night, mainly because we are here and he is there. In the NICU, routine brings security and comfort and we have developed a routine. Our routine of late is that we hold him while he is fed, but this evening the nurse felt that he would be overstimulated by additional contact. It is amazing the disappointment that a missed opportunity can bring-- even when I am sure all of us have his best interest in mind. But tomorrow is a new day, and we will be there at 8am to see our son. Posted by Picasa
