Minimal Stimulation


Here you can see that Davis is not supposed to have much interaction with the outside world right now. He is kind of sleeping and he is in his own little bubble. The more uninterrupted time he has on the ventilator the better he will be. We are just enjoying our time being along side of him and meeting all of the incredible staff that stays by his side at all hours. 

This next little picture is of Davis' buddy who is looking out for him.  Papaw would want it to be more of the Wolfpack color, and "uncle Gino" doesn't really want the Blue Devil Pride to be involved here, he is more of a Tarheel but Davis has obviously become a huge Duke fan..... this little buddy came from Brad and Kellie (bradandkellie.blogspot.com) today as they came up to see us and check on Davis. We are very excited for them because they are finally taking their son home.

 Thank you all for your kind words and prayers. We should be checking Carolyn out of here Sunday morning so we can sleep in a real bed again and hopefully start a visiting and learning routine with our son. Check back soon.......

He is beautiful! I know how difficult and scarry this is, but you are in a good place. Make sure that you get as much rest as possible. Easier said then done, trust me I know. It is so important that you are both alert and aware of whats going on and that can't happen if you are not sleeping. You are in my prayers daily and In my thoughts.

Welcome Davis! We are so happy that you are finally here and doing well! Carolyn and Michael - Zack is so thrilled to share a birthday with your son - he texted me from school yesterday to check on your progress. Get some rest and let me know if you need anything at all. We miss you!

He is beautiful - and in our thoughts and prayers. Also sending him the infamous LUNG FUNCTION chants too.

I am so glad that Kellie came by - that Duke Devil might be a tradition to all CDH babies there!
