For some reason, this site is not letting me post any pictures right now, which is too bad cause I just took some. Quinn got his leak check done today on his digestive system. Systems a go. The doctors will meet up in the morning, and he should be able to start eating. Drinking I should say. He'll start getting moms milk through the tube going into his belly. But what an upgrade from IV nutrients I would imagine. Steph has been pumping away for over a week in hopes of things working out. Now she will finally have purpose. Both his grandmothers visited him today all the way from Ledyard CT. Boston childrens hospital is not a convenient place to get to.
Left work today and got to the hospital late in the evening. First thing I noticed was that his face was different. I asked Steph if he had been in a fight with the other kids. His right eye was noticably swolen like someone punched him one. I'll show the pics whenever I can add them. He still looks good, and once he opened his eyes and started looking around, it seems the swelling went down. His crying is getting stronger now. He's crying with some dignity. It is nice hearing him, but I don't think he's a fussy kid. His first week of life has been a house of pain. I tell him he's got better days ahead and to stick with it.
I just let a group of guys from work in on this blog. While I've been receiving compliments and thanks for what I've been writing, these guys are going to read it and think I've been popping estrogin pills. I'm actually not fellas. Just tellin it like it is. The people at work have been great about all this. The project I'm on is right in the midst of kicking into high gear and people are covering for me and offering me any help I might need. They've been telling me I look in good spirits. Hey I just became a dad. At any rate, I can at least tell Quinn everyone at the office is joining the ranks of good people pulling for him.
