Day Three

Carter had a pretty good day today. He was really fussy, most likely from the pain. He would get upset if you touched any part of his face which is why he looks so grubby in these pics. I tried a couple of times to clean his face, but no matter how gentle I was he would start to cry. They eventually weaned him down to 5 liters of high flow Oxygen and plan to take him down to 4 tonight and stick with that until morning. They also started his feeds, but only at a quarter of what he usually takes. The doc said that he *thinks* that Carter could get transferred to the Infant Unit tomorrow. That is the next step before coming home.

I'm so glad it went well. He is so sweet. I love his eyes-it's as if you can see his soul!

The second picture made me smile a little inside. I swear it looks like he's thinking a dirty word! So precious. I just love him.
