The Bottle

Well, Jack's first attempt with a bottle went pretty good. He ate about 8 cc's of the 32 that we gave him with quite a bit of interest before he got overwhelmed and started crying. The nurse said that was a good start considering he's never swallowed anything. He is scheduled to attempt a bottle for the first 10 minutes of every other feeding, so hopefully he'll get it figured out a little better in the next few days. My mom took some video of it so I'll try to edit it down and post it later.

Marc, Aimee, Jack,

What a beautiful little boy! Obviously the good looks from mom. Being that he is a Hardy, I wondered if his cry wakes up all the other paients in the hospital...

Know that you and Jack are in our prayers.

With love,

Grant & Heather Stewart

Jack is looking good!

I'm Steve, 41, and I have a Heart Defect known as Tricuspid Atresia. Jackson is going to do OK... I was at the Adult Congenital Heart Association's convention a few months ago, and I met several Adults with HLHS, including a 23 year old bride to be!
