GOOD DAY!

Another uneventful day in the life of Maxwell...that's wonderful! He had a very peaceful day and enjoyed lots of good cuddling time with Mommy, as well as his Uncle David and Aunt Meredith. Max also got a big boy bath and is looking pretty darn cute!

There actually was talk today in morning rounds that if Max continues to have stable days, he might be transferred to the lower level unit next week sometime. (This was also discussed three weeks ago and then he went downhill quickly and had to have surgery, so I am trying to not get overly excited until it actually happens.) In the lower level unit, he still is very closely monitored but not as intensely as in the IICU. Parents play more of a role and are prepared for taking care of the babies when they come home. The other fun part is that I will get to sleep in the room with Maxwell!

We have been in the hospital for over 6 weeks (and another 3 weeks on bed rest)...I am getting very excited to bring my little guy home! Most likely it will be atleast another month before he actually heads to Bellingham, but still...progress is progress!

Amy and Max, this is awesome. Thanks for taking the time to let us know what is going on. It makes us feel like we are actually there. Take care! Ruthie
