((First, let me just thank all of you for your loving comments and wishes. I've loved reading them over the past days, and feel surrounded by the most amazing and powerful support. I have very little computer time, especially now that I'm not in the hospital, so I hope you'll bear with me when it takes a while to respond to your emails and calls... I have received all of them with love.))
Today I spent about 7 hours at the NICU with Shoghi and Maxwell, and for most of that time, we practiced Kangaroo Care. All this means is that I open my shirt, unswaddle or undress the baby (I do this one baby at a time) and we snuggle skin-to-skin. Some of that time may be spent practicing nursing, but mostly, the boys just sleep. Here are some photos of Shoghi, who looks beyond content, don't you think? I was trying to get his whole body, with his teeny legs curled up underneath him, but didn't quite capture it.
And because I can't leave him out, here's Max, snuggled up in his isolette this afternoon.
My goal for tomorrow is to give the low-down on all of the amazing progress my beautiful sons are making. Assuming they keep going as they have been, they'll be home before we know it. (well, maybe not before I know it, because every day of separation from them is torture, but you know what I mean!)
See you tomorrow!
