last update for tonight..Parker's breathing tube and NG tube are gone. He is sleeping now, intermittent periods of waking, just had a good one while another NICU baby was crying..even got a smile! They may give him some clear fluids tonight and hopefully we can hold him and i can feed him in the late morning. Things look positive to move to the 15th floor early afternoon, so pray for an uneventful night and no complications. Mike and I are going to get soem rest. This has been a marathon day and tomorrow we need some sleep. The prayers have been precious; we certainly feel God's loving embrace! Two pictures from today, one from right before they took him back and one tonight. The Drs told us how loving he was today in prepartion for surgery, lots of hugs, cuddles, and sweetness. They said they wished they had asked us if they could take pictures, apparently they don't get a lot of hugs..go figure!
Trusting and thanking God for his goodness!
