Truman is one month old today!
My, how much life changed one month ago today. The three of us got to share an early birthday present last night when we were allowed to hold him. Ben let me take last night's turn. If Truman behaves today, Ben will hold him tonight.
The kangaroo care went very well. He appeared comfortable and kept his temperature up really well. It was 99 something when we were done. He was mostly pretty still, but Ben said he had his eyes open a lot at the beginning before he settled in to sleep. Before we were done, he was up to his usual squirming, including trying to turn his head. He's a strong little guy!
It was a wonderful visit and a very big moment to get to hold our little boy for the first time.
In other news, he was fully weaned from his pain medication and blood pressure medication yesterday. His arm IV was also exchanged for a scalp IV. Although a little scary looking, the scalp IV is reportedly a more comfortable IV for the little guy than ones in his limbs.
