Today we have nothing on the schedule except for eating, diaper changes, bathing, and visiting baby James. It's a welcome relief.

James is doing well following his surgery in which they reconnected his intestines, examined his bowels, repaired three hernias and performed a circumcision. He is on lower vent settings now then he was just prior to the surgery. We are determined for a positive outcome for James, as he is such a strong little dragon who has been through so much already. Keep sending your well wishes his way!
