Couple of pictures...


This is a picture of the monstrous crib that The Boy has been sleeping in since last Tuesday night. It's huge, with a sign that says, "Weight Limit 350 pounds."





We call this picture, "Robo-baby." It's immediately after surgery, with all of the tubes and IVs and things.







Here he is in a more recent shot, still in the PICU. You can see the incision scar and the scar for the mediport on the top.

Aw, I love the look on his face in the pic where he's standing in his 'cage'. :) Sorry, you made me laugh when you called it a cage. It is a little intimidating!

Andrew has the same musical drum as David. Must be a musician's thing to buy them for our children! ;)

That's not actually our drum - that's the one from the children's playroom at the hospital. We do, however, have exactly the same drum at home. One less toy that we had to bring back & forth from the hospital...

...although, to paraphrase a song, "Mommas... don't let your babies grow up to be [drummers]..."

I 'know' your lovely wife from an online forum, so I dropped in to read your blog and get more info on how the little guy's doing. Just wanted to say he's been in my thoughts and prayers, and it's so good to see him smiling in the bottom photo of this entry. I welled up with tears looking at it (and can't entirely blame my pregnancy hormones this time) - it really does show just what a little fighter David is.

Best wishes to you, Molly and your beautiful son as he recovers from this frightening (but thankfully well-treatable) condition.
