Day 2 12/10/09

7:00 a.m.

Hank looks really good. He is awake today and looking around. He is on the lowest setting on his oxygen and may get to take his oxygen tube out today. I stayed with him for about an hour before he fell asleep. I know he has only been alive for like a day, but it seems like so much has happened. Hank and I cannot wait for his mom to get here. Her docter told her if she doesn't have a fever and she is behaving she will be released at 2 p.m. Normally she would be in the hospital until Friday or Saturday.

12:15 p.m.

They removed his oxygen tube. I can see his whole face and he looks so good. They will have to put a small tube back in, but it is alot better than the big oxygen tube. Docter Parikh said they are going to do some genentic testing to see if some mutations caused his condition. My dad brought a lovie that Sam slept with last night for Hank. They said he will be able smell her and help comfort him.

3:15 p.m.

Samantha arrived @ the hospital. We went straight back to see Hank and Sam go to change a dirty diaper. We spent about 20 minutes with him, then Sam meet with Patricia the lactation specialist. They went to the breast feeding room for at least 30 min. They still haven't put the little tube back in.

7:00 p.m.

Sam brought Hank a pacifier and he loves it. They told us he will not have to have the little tube back in his mouth. This little man is so tough.

God has greatly blessed us. There is no doubt in our minds that God is protecting and watching over him. He has made it evident in so many ways. We are so thankful for our amazing family and friends. We cannot thank ya'll enough
