I have lots of updates, but here are some pictures in the mean time. There is something here called "Kangaroo Kare". They have it at other hospitals too. It's where you hold the baby against your skin. I didn't have a good shirt on, as the neck was kind of small, but it worked okay. Last night worked better because I had a hospital gown on. Lee will hold him tomorrow.

Oh my goodness Ruth. I cant believe he is here. I am glad that he is doing well. He is beautiful!
I know you said he has a 90% chance now based on the age, I am sure you will blog more details. Curious how he ended up being here at this time so early?? Congrats again!

Thanks for the update! He is precious. Is the "Kangaroo Kare" for keeping him warm and feeling safe?

He is so tiny! I bet if feels fabulous to give him the skin to skin cuddle. Both of ours were not so good at maintaining their temp so we got to do some Kangaroo care ourselves. Guy felt a little weird, but now remembers it fondly. How are you feeling? Can't wait for the updates.

You look so good. Little Eldon is to tiny. He looks so content and snuggy next to mommy. All our best.
