It is very very very important for everyone to know that today, October 25th 2006, my mother Ellen Safir, visited Jack at the NICU. I love my mother very much. Thank you for coming mom!
Now, on to our regularly scheduled post…
We’ve secretly been using this revolutionary new product every time we go to the NICU, and all I can tell you is that it really works! Jack is now off of the cannula and breathing regular room air (which is 21% oxygen by the way).
To celebrate, Jack said “to heck with it” and had a second piece of chocolate cake. The really crazy part is that you’d never know that he was such a nut for the chocolate, ’cause he simply refuses to flip over the five pound marker. As of 5 minutes ago, Jack was weighing in at 4 pounds and 15.8 ounces. Damnit!
In this first pic, he is working very very hard on a poop. Luckly, he didn’t succeed until after Sarah and I left, ’cause from the look of things, it was a doozy.
