Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Here is the latest on baby Chandler. Yesterday he got kicked out of his private room with a view to the non-isolated NICU. There was another baby that needed the room so he is now in the regular NICU. They took out his ventilator yesterday but it was too much work for him to have to breathe on his own so they ended up putting it back in this morning. Yesterday they moved him into an isolet bed, so Lacie got to really hold him for the first time while they got him all set up so that was really special for her. They ended up moving him back into his regular bed though because it is easier for everyone to get to him and do the things they need to do. Lacie likes this bed better because it is easier to touch him and she doesn't have to reach through the little holes. His jaundice continues to improve. Lacie says they have him dressed up for St. Patricks day today, so maybe we will get some new pictures!

  1. Oh, I know exactly how Lacie feels. My son was in the NICU and I still remember holding him for the first time. Every little thing was such a big deal- changing his diaper, touching him, and finally holding him. Having to wait made it that much more special.

    They continue to be in our prayers.
