He's Awake?!

I don't know how, but Brigham has actually been awake and a little wiggly a few times over the last few days. Especially since surgery, they've have him on several sedatives and even a paralytic agent so he doesn't wiggle too much and either disturb one of his many important tubes or stress himself out by "exercising" too much.

He's still getting skinnier (with help from the hemofilter) and he's starting to look like a different boy! I hadn't realized I'd gotten so used to him being puffy!
I caught a cute picture of him with his eyes open this morning. :) Enjoy! (and even though you can't tell in this picture, his eyes are really really dark gray-blue, they're beautiful!)

He'll have another chest xray done later this afternoon to check progress on his lungs. They're slowly turning up the ventilator settings. We'll see what happens.

Oh my goodness, he does look different not being so puffy. His eyes have always looked so pretty and expressive even though he can't do anything right now. He is signaling us, "I'm still in this fight".
Love you sweet little boy!
