A new plan...

Yesterday I woke up to the news that you were moving to NICU. The doctors at the CTICU decided that you were no longer a heart baby. So you were moved to the unit that handles preemies, since they deal with a lot of respiratory distress issues this would be the best option to help you take the next step.

Auntie Val came to see you. She hasn't seen you since the day you were born. She took some beautiful pictures of you.

I also want to put the pictures she took of you but she hasn't sent them to me. For now you can check them out on her blog here.

So after your picc line was put in you were moved to the third floor. Half way to the sixth, I would say that is progress. the accommodations are not the same on the third but the level of care is. We are back to wearing yellow gowns so the pics are accurate.

We brought pizza to the staff at the CTICU to thank them. The notes says "Thank you for not just caring for Mason but for caring about Mason. With all our heart - the Lozanos"

We so miss all the wonderful nurses and Dr's in the TCICU. They are amazing and we are all blessed to have had them take care of Mason

At about 8PM you had 3 CC of mamas milk. You were feed through a tube but man did you look happy. You just looked at me like you had been waiting for this your whole life. Since you are only 15 days old and you have never eaten that is probably right.

Aunt Michelle came and met you. You two bonded right away. :)

I took the late shift since your mother was not feeling well. I got a call at about 3AM. Your Mom was in a lot of pain and went to the ER. She is back in the room sleeping hopefully. She has a kidney infection, probably brought on form the Foley during the C section.

So for today it is you and me boy. What more can a father ask for?

That was very kind of you to take pizza to the doctors and nurses.
Still sending prayers!
