Day 1

Hardy and I went over to say goodnight to sweet Jack and he is doing so great. It's hard to believe anything could possibly be wrong with him that would require him to be in the NICU. He just sleeps and grunts and does everything that a newborn should do. His feet were a little blue earlier today, but that has now gone away and looks perfect. I just want to scoop him up and bring him back to my room with me. Well, maybe tomorrow night. I think Hardy and I could both use a good night's rest. Poor Hardy has spent most of the day shuttling family and friends back and forth between my hospital room and the NICU so they can see Jack and it's not a short distance. And as for me, I feel quite good, I'm just pooped and wish they would stop checking my vitals every few hours so I could rest.
All three of us are doing great though, and we look forward to tomorrow when we can get more answers and information and start the day refreshed and rested.

Sweet dreams little Jack!

I have just been bawling at my computer screen. He is such a beautiful baby boy. I can't get over this and I'm so so happy for you both.

So, how much did he weigh? Length? He's got some good chub on him! :)

What a beautiful little guy!! Congrats!!! He is so sweet, and so chubby!! I love that little fluff of hair on newborns.

We will be praying for you in the days to come, and I hope that soon sweet little Jack is home soon in your arms.

Sending lots of ((HUGS))

He is BEAUTIFUL! What a pink, plump little boy. That is awesome. Good luck with the Norwood, these guys have obviously done this a number of times, I'm sure they are getting REALLY good at it!
