By the time we got to the hospital this morning, they had already moved Douglas out of the ICU to our new home on the floor. It’s a major transition, but it’s great. We’re feeding Douglas, we’re getting him to sleep, we’re bathing him, and we’re changing his diapers. However, we’re still not quite making all the calls, because the doctor has decided that Douglas isn’t quite taking enough milk from the bottles, so they need to put a feeding tube back into tonight to make sure he gets enough fluids.
Now that the day is done, Jenny and I are apart. She’s sleeping at the hospital in the shared room with Douglas, and I’m getting a full night’s sleep at home. So, she’s there all night to make sure Douglas is doing well and to learn more about Douglas and who he is. It’s the start of a long, beautiful road.
