|Yeah, I can get pretty comfy even with |
all the noise and lights
Yesterday he got a new home - in the special care unit of the NICU. So, we are moving on up...or over (next door)...or down (to the step down room 200)!! Any way you look at it, it's a step closer to the door and to bringing him home.
Actually, it's not so bad. The new room is much quieter, with a lot less activity and alarms beeping. [Except last night around 8:00, when it seemed like every baby in the room woke up and wanted to be fed...there was dueling cries going on around the room!] There is more space, and Andrew didn't have any problems adjusting. A few of his old favorite nurses stopped by to check in on him, and in all he had a good day in his new digs.

J and I are excited to know that he's closer to discharge, and every day can see him getting stronger, gaining weight, and needing less support and attention. Now, much of our anxiety is around having a baby in the house and caring for him full-time on our own, like any new parents. We can't wait for the day that we can walk out of there with him and bring him to our home, for good!
