I was feeling down about not holding Will this morning, but shortly after, the nurse asked the doctor if I could hold him and we finally got the okay! It took a lot of effort to move him but it was so worth it! He fussed when they picked him up but fell right to sleep in my arms.
Today, I was surprised when they decided to take his art line out. They also removed his NIRS (he can wear hats now!). So we should be able to hold him more!
He has started feeds (via ng tube) and tolerating them beautifully. The OT and speech therapist came today and he actually drank a tiny bit from a bottle.
At rounds today, he was called a rock star... Duh!
