A new day

Sometimes - and I'm talking very generally - the information that we think we hear, or even that we ourselves give, is not understood or is misconstrued. That goes both ways. And while at times that can be frustrating, I think however that it is normal that we each individually relate better to certain people, more so than others. I have to take this moment though to say that all the staff we have had dealings with over the last few weeks - no matter how small - have been lovely, patient and as understanding as possible. Why does that all matter right now? The Doctors made certain things regarding Josh's ongoing care, much clearer today. And we feel more assured about things. Thank you.

Josh had a great night again last night, although he stayed "asleep" longer this morning, and looked quite comfy. He seems to be responding well to the antibiotics, because is temperature he stable, as are his other stats, and there are no rashes or obvious joint redness.

John and I also noticed Josh open his mouth wider twice, and move his tongue a few times. We're trying to ascertain if he's actually swallowing, because there are less secretions.

Here is Jojo in his jimjams (given by Carolyn). The giraffe (from Isaac) we like to put it in Joeys hand to not only keep his hands open a little, but because it looks like he's strangling it! :)

Josh looks great, he is such a beautiful boy. Ashleigh used to look to one side constantly for a while too.

I'm so glad to see a picture of your little man.
