Isaac Update

Isaac is doing very well!  He is more and more alert when we go to feed him and we enjoy all the time that we can spend with him.  He hates his feeding tube and has pulled it off his face a few times and clear out of his nose once.  He always loves to have his hands up by his face.

He is on light therapy for jaundice.  Here he is in his luchador mask as Grandpa Jeff calls it.  His bilirubin number is going down so we’re hopeful that today will be his last day under the lights.  That means we can hold him more and see his eyes when we visit.  🙂

 Last night when we went to feed at 10:00 p.m he was the most alert we have seen him.  He was content to just look around at the lights and at his parents.  It was so fun to see him so interactive.  He is learning quickly how to nurse and once he does, we’ll be headed home.  He gets better everyday.  We sure love our little guy!  Can’t wait to have him with us all of the time.
