I can hold him pretty much whenever I want to...and I do. Due to all his cords, medicines, and whatnot, I have to stay completely stationary next to his bed. He is always a tangle of cords, but I'm so glad I can hold him. He and I both do better when we are touching.
When he is in his bed, he has his little monkey friend to keep him company. His monkey likes to wear his hat when it's not in use. The monkey also holds a little sound recorder, that the kids pre-recorded songs and messages to their baby brother. As discovered through all the ultrasounds, Kimble loves to have his right hand up by his mouth. He rarely puts his hand anywhere else.
He is also surrounded in a colorful environment, with this sweet blanket my friend Sara made for him. She made it a small size, specifically for his little NICU bed, and it's just perfect.
Bright and early this morning, Kimble had another chest X-ray. This was my view, from the little foldout bed I was sleeping on. Can you find Kimble? He's totally hidden by machinery.
Heath managed to snap a picture just when Kimble was making an adorable face. So precious!
Heath came up last night and stayed the night. He loves being with his baby. Oh, and he loves seeing me too!
Tomorrow Kimble will undergo a special procedure in the Cath Lab, to essentially pop through his pulmonary valve (which is not currently a valve, but by using a type of balloon, they will pop it open) and hopefully that will get some blood flow into the pulmonary artery, as well as his right ventricle, and from there, we wait and see how his body will react. The doctors are hoping it will stimulate growth in his ventricle, and possibly start having his heart behave like a normal heart. Well, have the possibility to, anyway. So tomorrow will be a big day for us. Your prayers are not only appreciated, but are felt so strongly. Thank you.
