However, Heath wants to be with Kimble as much as possible. He comes up to the hospital very often, to be with us. We are so happy that he was given so much donated vacation time so that he doesn't have to go into work. Also, because my mom is with the kids, he is free to come to the hospital as often as he wants to. That has been great, since Kimble has had so many ups and downs these past few weeks. It's been so great having Heath here to comfort and support us.
Last weekend, Heath found something that he can do for baby that I can't. Their blood-types match, so Heath was able to donate blood for Kimble, in anticipation of a blood transfusion that our doctors want us to be prepared for. Heath very proudly loaded up on electrolytes and ate good food, so he could give his best to his son.
Sometimes, just being here next to baby, and enjoying an afternoon nap together, is just what they both need.
Since I have always breastfed, bottle-feeding our babies was never an option available to him. Heath got the chance to feed Kimble a few times, and it certainly is endearing to watch them.
