Day 7 - Afternoon Visit

Tyler and I came back this afternoon for a visit with Landry.  We got to give him a sponge bath and then wash his hair in the sink.  He got the deluxe treatment. =)  Tyler then was able to hold him and give him a bottle.  His feeding tube needed to be switched so we were able to get some shots of him with nothing on his face.  We haven't seen him like that since he was born!  We are both getting more comfortable holding and moving him which is nice.  It is pretty intimidating with all the wires, stitches, colostomy, etc but we are getting the hang of it.  The nurses are so good about encouraging us to change his diaper, pick him up ourselves, swaddle him, and so on.  They are amazing nurses and it is so comforting to know he is receiving excellent care when we aren't there.  Landry didn't need any tylenol today, just sugar water to soothe him from the hunger pangs which is a great step!
