October 16-18, 2009

Super G did super well during his MRI on Friday. The trip down and back from the MRI unit was uneventful, which is what we were hoping for, and they were able to get all of the images they needed. Upon return to his room in the NICU Gabe was being absolutely adorable and per Jesse was "high as a kite." He was under anesthesia for the MRI. Jesse got some really great pics of Gabe Friday afternoon. I don't think I've ever seen him looking so cute. Jesse will post them for ya'll tomorrow along with a more thorough description of the MRI results. Jesse spoke with Dr "H" this afternoon regarding the MRI, but of course Jesse and I have yet to have a chance to sit down and talk today. Maybe Kayla will actually go to bed on time tonight and we'll have time to sit down together. Fingers crossed!

Overall Gabe has had a good weekend. He behaved himself most of the time and didn't pull any crazy stuff. He has done well with the vent change to pressure support, hasn't required many PRN's, and has just been hanging out enjoying this lovely fall weekend. Unfortunately his chest tubes have still been putting out quite a bit. We have a Care Conference with Dr "B" (the Neonatology Guru) on Tuesday, and we are anxious to hear what he has to say about Gabe. About a month ago he said he was "frustrated but not discouraged" by Gabe. We'll see if he still feels that way, and find out what his thoughts are on how we may be able to help G move forward.

Gabe would like to thank Auntie Meghan, Grandma Reynolds, Grandpa Reynolds, Grandma Aguilar, Grandpa Aguilar, and especially his Big Sister Kayla, for visiting with him this weekend.
