Out of isolation

Danny here. Cohen is 66 days old today.  Its hard to believe it has already been that long, but at the same time it feels like every hour is just barely creeping by.   Every day seems to last a week, but at the same time its suprising to me that 66 days have already gone by.  It feels like I'm stuck in a time paradox or something.

Cohen is on the high-flow nasal prongs today and over the last 24 hours they have attempted to move his volume down from 4L to 3L.  Yesterday and last night he didnt handle it very well, so today they moved him to 3.5L and he seems to be doing pretty well so far.

He finally got out of isolation today!  The regular person at infectious disease came back and they had a meeting where they decided that he didnt need to be in isolation anymore.  His mother was very excited and has already gotten her kangaroo care in for the day.  We also don't have to wear the yellow non-breathable gowns or gloves anymore.  Jana and I are sorry to say that we won't miss them.

That's all the big news for today.  I'll use my audience to mention that Jana and I are celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversay this weekend.  I couldn't imagine marrying a more strong, beautiful, and wonderful girl and I thank God for her and Cohen everyday.

{Special thanks to Uncle Joel, Auntie Christine & the boys for Cohen's monkey jammies!}
