I haven't really had time to update the blog so that is kind of a short update. I've been able to get some pictures so I thought I'd at least jump on for a moment to post them for you :)
He kept pulling of the leads to his monitor so they stuck them to his back instead
Mikes toy from his nurse Leah - He used his IV hand as a hammer and loves it!
He's not really enjoying his crib but this was the first time he was ok playing in it
His IV Hammer
Not the best pic other than being a funny face - I wanted to point out how much he is pulling in while breathing. On the left you can see his ribs. The point above his belly button is a scar from one of his drainage tubes after surgery - possible herniation.
PS It is also CHD awareness week starting today. Just thought I'd spread the word and some info. There are so many babies, children and even grown adults dealing with CHD. 1 in every 100 babies is born with a heart defect. Michael's defect is known as Shone's Complex http://www.pted.org/?id=shones1
Our current nurse has two patients at the moment - Michael (10 month old) and a man in the room next to us that looks just over 30. CHD is all around us and the symptoms may slow for a while but for so many it never goes away. I encourage you to make an effort this week to pay it forward from one healthy heart to another. Fill your heart with love so that others may see that there is still plenty to go around <3
