Satch and a sucker

Satch and a sucker

The truth is out – I’m an awful parent. I’m already playing favorites by posting pic after pic of Satchmo. It’s just that whole my-eyes-are-always-open thing (and also the I-look-like-a-really-old-man thing too). I had a thousand things to write tonight – lots of thoughts swirling around the old brain. But writing also takes time, and I think I’m gonna follow some of the sage advise offered to me in the comments and let this picture do the talking for tonight. Quick update: Levi and Satch continue to improve. They’re both breathing and feeding (!) – getting those first golden morsels of colostrum that are truly life’s nectar. We’re both sensing in our bones that kangaroo care can’t be far off with these two, and anyone who knows Alex knows just how deeply she possesses the marsupial impulse. Pablo had an echo cardiogram amidst other tests today and tonight, and he has a great team of respiratory specialists attending to his every need. His situation is not dire, so don’t panic (said to me and mom as well as to y’all). He just continues to be a little slow w/ proper lung function, and his heart murmur seems more and more likely to be the culprit. He may need a little medicine to straighten things out – but most of his vitals are good, and I secretly think he’s digging the whole ventilator thing.

Enough with the update – what sort of person are you if you made it past that photo anyway?
