I have added several photos to the photo journal. Unfortunately we have not yet been able to bring our little guy home but the Dr said he should be home sometime this week. He was having trouble keeping food down and it turns out he had a meconium blockage, plus he was jaundiced. Saturday was a rough day. He was in an incubator under billie lights, had an IV going, a tube going from his nose to his stomach, and monitors all over 🙁 We were not able to hold him or feed him. By Sunday the tube came out of his nose and we were able to hold and feed him again. Today the IV came out and so did some of the billie lights. He will undergo some more blood tests tomorrow to make sure that he is still making progress and if so we hope to bring him home!
He is such a calm baby, we love him so much and can’t wait to bring him home!

Just a quick update, not too much to report. Dillon has been playing games all weekend! I’ll have steady contrations for an hour or so and then they will stop. We’re getting very anxious, I hope the real thing happens soon!
Happy Fathers Day to all the daddies out there!
