Max is moving tomorrow (Wednesday) to the craniofacial floor...we are finally leaving the Intensive Care Unit! We are making progress! While there are of course some serious health concerns right now, the cardiologist and ENT doctor (the two biggest areas of concern) both feel comfortable with this move....and for the most part, so do I. If things should deteriorate even slightly, he will be moved back to the ICU. They have reserved a very special spot by the nurses' station for Max...they want to keep an eye on this wonderful little guy! I am already being trained in his care, and this will allow even more intensive training so we can prepare for going home...someday. What is great about going to "the floor" is that I can actually stay with him in the room 24/7...sleep, eat, everything! To celebrate his move, I bought him a swing tonight and he really likes it! It will make our new room feel more like home.

Many of you have asked about his weight gain...he is doing really well putting on the pounds (or ounces in his case). Max is now weighing in at 5 pounds, 8 ounces! Finally getting some meat on the bones! They want him to gain an ounce a day...and he is doing just that!

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers...greatly appreciated! Sorry if I don't respond to every phone call or email, but I do love hearing from you...sometimes it might just take me a while to get back to you! :)

Amy, it is an exciting thought to think of you and Max sleeping in the same room!
