Today has been a good day for me - I'm getting stronger by the hour. I have been retaining water so I have swelled up. Mommy keeps calling me the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man. They have put me on a lasik drip to help take the swelling down (which the doctors say is normal for this type of surgery).
Once the swelling is down they will close my incision - hopefully tomorrow! They have also begun weaning me off the respirator.
I tend to get pretty excited when mommy & daddy come visit me, kicking and moving around. The doctors say I have to behave or they are afraid I will hurt myself or pull on something I shouldn't. They just don't understand that I'm excited to hear my parents' voices.
When I hear mommy, I show her my sucking face so she can see that I'm still practicing, even though they won't let me have my pacifier. I'll be ready to eat as soon as they let me.
Hard to believe I'm 5 days old already!
