David is doing his best to heal. He actually looked much less swollen last night when we were there. He continues to have temper tantrums and I can't say I blame him - he's hungry and tired and swollen. He tries to open his eyes but it's impossible - they are too swollen and have discharge that sort of glues them shut. I'm told it's all normal. Last night, David and I rocked until 3am. He finally settled down and I went to get a little sleep then. I'm sorry to be unable to post photos of all of this until I get back but they are coming.
He seems to be doing well on the nasal cannula although they are not near as aggressive about weaning here. I finally had a sit down with the sweet nurse last night about their criteria. She was patient with me as I explained my intense need to understand the rationale for all decisions about David.
Mary Louise has her eye exam today. Waiting to hear results. I'm so pulled between the two of them and miss Brent terribly but I know he is doing his best there with her as I am here with him. We will all be together again soon.
Off to the hospital again.
