Alright, we're back up and running. Yesterday was my first day back at work. It was fun to see everybody but my heart was with the babies. Fortunately, we are not far from the med center and I'm able to make it down there after work.
Cohen, Finn and Sophia have been re-united! They are now in the same pod right next to each other. Cohen has moved into an open crib, with Finn and Sophia not far behind. I'm hoping that by next week they are all in one crib. No more wandering around the halls trying to remember which baby is in which pod.
Mom & Mr. Finn
Noah is still recovering from surgery. He is a bit sedate from the morphine and after-effects of anesthesia. The nurses and staff are amazed at how well he's doing and how good he looks; I'm not sure why they're surprised - he does take after me:) Mari spoke with a hematologist yesterday because there is some research that indicates blood clots may play a role in causing NEC. They will run a few tests to rule this out and don't think that this is the case with Noah. Other than that, they are hoping he will poop pretty soon so we'll know that the lower portion of his intestines are working. All the moms we have talked to always say, "You'll never be so excited about poop." Now I know what they're talking about. Noah has been entrusted to God and He is looking over Noah.
