Baby G

Yesterday our son George was in a world of hurt. It's hard to know what's going on with someone so little, especially as there is no history or file we can look in. And, amazingly, most babies work out any issues on their own. Humans are amazingly resilient. George is no exception.

While we still don't know what exactly the problem was or is or even if there will be any lasting implications, we do know that George feels one hundred percent better today. He clearly looks better. Check out these photos!

Yesterday (that's blood, not lipstick coming out of the left side of his mouth).

Today after an ultrasound on his head (hat off, no blood, way less wires and tubes)

So thanks for all your thoughts, prayers, and good wishes. They are clearly working.

Congratulations and best wishes for you, mom and the baby. Interestingly Ashley reported that newborn Rey d'Orleans had trouble breathing, too.

I was just reading some of Ashley's blog and came across that one by chance.

Interesting that they don't tell you all this stuff is possible going in.
Just so you know, Tim, he is pretty much off all his machines now and eating from a bottle. "Improving" is what the doctors and nurses say. "Amazing" is what our friends say. "Awesome" is what we say. Hopefully the little guy is coming home with us by the end of the weekend. Thanks for the link to Ashley's post. I remember reading that when it happened. Totally skipped the lung part.
