My night with Jack

For all the naysayers out there that questioned my resolve to be able to stay at the hospital all night I give you the following report. Jack had a pretty good night. He slept from about 11:00-3:30. He woke up going crazy. I sat and rocked him for about an hour and then turned him over to the nurse for his 4:00 feeding. She got him taken care of and then he slept until his 6:00 chest x-ray. He had a good night but boy that boy has some lungs. His Mom is known to talk loudly so we know where he must get that from. Someday when Jack is a little older and knows what his Dad likes and dislikes he will be touched that I spent the night there with him. Aimee relieved me around 8:00 this morning looking very refreshed after a nice nights sleep at home. His bottle feeds continue to progress slowly. The speech therapist is coming by today to help us learn how to feed him a little better. Hopefully this will help.

Good going. .who knew you had it in you? LOL. Really, when it's your child, you would do anything.
I am glad to read that he is taking to the bottle. . .it might be slow but it's progress.
Just wanted you to know I was thinking of you guys and keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
