Then & Now

This was me yesterday...

And this is me today...

We ended up going home about 6:30 last night to try to "take a break". I took a super hot bath, took my vicodin and a unisom and slept fantastically! I had a heating pad on for a little while and the combo of everything made me feel so much bettter!

Justin doing basically what we do all day... Sitting on the couch either reading a book or playing a game on the computer. Boring is better than too exciting though!
We brought a new blanket from home to put over his isolette instead of the generic cover. We also brought his "little monkey" B.

Yesterday Brigham started to open his eyes for more than just a flicker. We happened to have some friends visiting and got some cute candids. Can you tell how excited we are to see him with his eyes open?

You can barely tell, but he does have his eyes open in this picture. And even when his hair is all gooped down from the ultrasound, you can still see his little highlights. :)
According to his latest chest ultrasound, the blood pressure in his lungs is still slowly, but steadily going down.

The best way to describe what the doctors are saying lately is: They are starting to think about the possibility of maybe talking about when they might be able to start to talk about setting up a possible schedule for surgery.... Confusing, I know. "Wait and see" is the name of the game!

He did amazing last night. Looked around every time I did cares :-) love the blog. The pics are amazing and I'm sure make it easier for people to understand all the stuff you and him are going through.

I am so glad you are doing better, that would be horrible to not feel well and be trying to deal with everything you are dealing with!
