Awake and doing great

It took a little while, but Jack finally woke up and ate a bottle this afternoon. The nurses have said that the Glenn usually makes babies super grumpy since it triples the pressure of the blood in their head and gives them awful headaches, but Jack seems to be coping with it like he's got a hang over. He's a little spacey and drifting in and out of sleep, but overall he's doing really well.

Dr. Kaza has come by quite a few times today to check on Jack. His murmur was louder this morning then they thought it should be so he ordered an echo to see if there was some leakage which is why he is in such an uncomfortable position in this picture. Everything looked good though and Dr. Kaza said that he feels really good about things, so I feel good about that.

Jack and I also got a little snuggle time, which we both enjoyed. Ok, probably me more than him since getting moved around was a little painful for him 1 day post-op.
