It’s been a great ten days since I last wrote. Douglas’s bandages and sterile strips and stitches and oxygen are gone. We’ve had two appointments with the Cardiologist, and he can say nothing other than how great Douglas is doing. He had an EKG and an echocardiogram this morning, and they both were fantastic. His weight is good, his feedings are good, his sleeping is good, and he’s very cute.
I’ve returned to work, which was difficult, but it’s working out. Since Jenny hasn’t returned to work yet, she’s getting a lot less sleep at night than I am. She’s figuring out how to catch up on sleep during the day while still taking care of our little one. It’ll be tough again when she goes back to work, but she’ll be working only one morning and one afternoon per week, so her mother and I will take care of Douglas while she’s at work.
I’ve also uploaded a lot of pictures from the past couple weeks to http://douglasfinney.shutterfly.com/.
