We were originally supposed to be transferred to Children's Hospital yesterday afternoon. The doctors delayed it a few hours, then said it would be immediate, then they changed things again. Apparently, right as they were ready to do the transfer, another baby took the spot intended for our baby, which apparently was an emergency situation. So we've just been hanging out at University hospital still. It's been just fine, but I think we are all ready to get settled over at Children's.
As far as Kimble goes, he is doing very well with his oxygen levels. The prostoglandin medicine is doing the job. He had an echocardiogram the night he was born, and that showed no surprises from what we saw through the ultrasounds when I was pregnant. He has many more tests and procedures planned for him over the next few days while the doctors gather all the information needed before they decide on his route of surgeries.
Even though he is doing so GREAT, his situation is still very severe. However, Kimble has proved to be such a trooper already. He is so good natured about all the pricks, pokes, and prods that he is bombarded with. He is just so sweet natured.
He loves being touched and talked to. He always has his little right hand up by his mouth. Yesterday I walked in and he was sucking on his two first fingers. He is soft and lovable and sweet.
Heath went home last night to be with the kids. He had a hard time leaving his little boy. It was very tender to see how in love he is with Kimble. We are so grateful for our friends who have watched our kids these past few days, and even extended their watch, so that Heath could be here with us as much as possible. He has plans to come back again and spend the day, as we transition to the other hospital. My mom flies in tonight to stay with us for the rest of the month.
I'll keep updating everyday! Once again, we are so grateful for all your prayers. We are healthy and able to be strong, emotionally and physically, during this time. Thank you all so much.
