“Will he break?” I remember one of the nurses telling us how easy it is to fear preemies might break. She went on to suggest that they are very limber so when putting on that very little diaper one would not break his little leg. I tell you in those very early days, not that we are not still in his very early days, we did wonder just how to “handle” that little boy.
The problem was, we could not “handle” him. We could get into the “isolette” (the more proper word than “box”) through the portholes but that is hardly “handling.” Now we are in day 17 and not only may we touch him through the porthole, Craig and Kimberly can hold him. This week’s weekly video is taken from Tuesday of this week; my day in Cohen’s Office as I like to refer to it.
Cohen Alan has gained back what he had lost in those first days and then some. We are looking forward to the 4 lb. mark when they will take him out of the isolette. He does not have any IV’s at present and they may take the PICC line out tomorrow. As always, thanks for your thoughts and prayers. We are all looking forward to the day when we can “handle” him.
