Thursday 31st March 2011

Such good news today. Adam is off the ventilator and breathing on his own. He also hasn't had a seizure in 48hrs so is now off the brain monitor (though the long term damage from all the previous ones is yet unknown) The next step is to slowly reduce the salt/sugar/fat solution that's supplementing his milk until he shows he can tolerate full milk. He's also AWAKE and moving all his limbs and looking at us! :-D

It also should be said that we were there when he opened his eyes for the first time so once he could focus on anything, the first was my face and then he looked round to fix on Chris too. A perfect moment...

They will now let down the sides of his bassinet and around the wires we can touch him, hold his hand and in Chris's case tickle his feet (horrible Daddy). From time to time he will grip my finger as he slowly moves his arm immense progress.
