Some of my family - Karen, Joel, Christine, and Chuck came to visit and meet baby Cohen last night. He was so excited to meet them that he decided to show off and poop for them! The nurses were very impressed and offered to let Danny change his diaper. He still has lots of tubes and wires that are a little overwhelming so he let the nurse change his diaper but he did get to take his temperature! We are very glad that Cohen got to meet some of his family (and a few friends) yesterday.
The nurses here are so great, they always keep us updated on everything going on. They also take pictures for us when they open up his incubator to do his cares and they keep them on a CD for us. Cohen likes to hold onto his breathing tube or whatever other wires he can find. He had a sticker on his little eye cover that he got his poor little fingers stuck on. The nurse had to come pry his fingers off. He is a busy little boy that likes to stretch his arms and legs.
Again, we really appreciate all the prayers!! Please continue to pray for his lungs and kidneys and also that his brain will not have any more bleeding. I will be getting discharged from the hospital today. The hospital will provide a room for us to stay in for one or two nights. It is based on priority and since we live so far away and have a sick baby they said it shouldn't be a problem getting us a room, but if someone else needs it more then we will have to find something else. So for now, some good news! We know things can change very quickly and that we have a very fragile little guy. But he seems to be putting up a good fight and we are so thankful for a little good news.
