The baby had a set back this weekend. He threw up and it was dark forest green in color. That is not a good color. They have stopped his feedings completely, hooked him back up to IV feedings, and put the tube in his nose down to his stomach again to drain it. Today he is a month old and we all thought he was getting close to finally coming home, but now we are back to square one. They are doing X-rays and running all kinds of tests to see what's wrong with him. As you can imagine this has been very hard on all of us. Last night they had Brek and Brittany spend several hours of "kangaroo time" with him where they hold him skin to skin. It really gave him comfort to have that closeness with his parents. He also got moved out of the bassinet into a big boy crib because he's grown so much this past month. B&B took his mobile and colorful crib toys to the hospital, so that when he does come home he will have some familiar things around him.
I have more things to blog about but I have no time right now....maybe tonight.
