While you were sleeping...

SO! Hannah's out of the NICU and is now her Pediatrics room! Kim, Hannah and myself are able to be in the same room now for the duration of her stay. Hannah will be receiving antibiotics until Wed/Thurs to help her fight an unseen infection that was occurring during the delivery.

The O2 levels have been fine for a few days now and she is off her IV too, so all they have to do in the new room is give the antibiotics every once in a while and monitor heart and respiratory rates. Life is much better. Dr. was supposed to come around this morning with an update during rounds, but so far, no doc - it's after lunch... maybe since it's Sunday, they will be later than normal.

Now, we have a few more pics.... we also have a Hannah Cam being set up on demand. I am going to try and setup something more accessible, but so far, I have only used Yahoo before, so if anyone has any good suggestions on how to setup a free webcam private broadcast, let me know...

INTERESTING sequence of events...

Before we came to the hospital, we were eating a final sandwich preparing for the hours ahead of us without food. I remembered from Kim's shower a couple weeks ago, she had a couple balloons from the decorations left over... It's a Boy and It's a Girl balloons... Very nice. Once the balloons made it home, the It's a Boy balloon fell to the floor and pretty much stayed there unless messed with. Just before we walked out the door, I wanted to document the balloons' status just for the record... here's what I found.

Neat huh? We didn't know the sex of the baby, but we both believed it to be a boy! Well... I guess I can be wrong now can't I... :-)

Hannah and Daddy spending some time after feeding...








The night went well. Basically, getting up occasionally to rock her back to sleep and to feed. We, of course are getting only a few hours total for the evening... I think I am fairing better than mama... This sleep schedule is similar to when I am on the road traveling, except I'm the one getting up every couple hours...

And here is Kim trying to get back a her perfectly innocent husband... I can't believe the behavior... Some people's children!?!?!

Wow! I even impressed myself... it REALLY looks like my finger is up my nose... Hannah is teaching her Daddy terrible things... and the NOISES she makes!!! Atrocious!
(This is Kim's fair shot after yesterday's post!)

Hannah looks so content and happy on Mike's lap. Glad you are in a new room and are adapting. The balloon thing is cool too.

I must say this is better than a movie or a good book. Mike, you should be a comic....lol

I am so glad things are going well and I am so excited for the two of you...I look forward to seeing her first hand and of course your next blog entry..Hope you have a good night and just hang in there it does get a little easier..the sleep that is.
