Well it's 10:15pm, and Jude is still awake. Yes, that means he slept 2 1/2 hours last night, maybe 2 hours this morning, and an hour this afternoon, and he is awake. Mike says there is no way the medication could reach his blood stream this quickly, but I fail to concur. Jude is happily chatting away with his glow globe on his blanket, and this even after 12 ounces of formula at once. Jude has eaten wonderfully today, he even ate the entire amount of solids the nurse made! He also held his rattle for five minutes even bringing it to his mouth, stood up on the stander for over twenty minutes, and didn't even cry during his bath. I am rather impressed, but I am hoping he will sleep.
I am encouraged at this recent sudden development of a want to progress, but I am discouraged at Jude's lack of sleep. It's only been two days, so I will reserve any other judgements for a little bit longer.
I am still battling with all my emotions from last night, but I know they will soon be settled. Thanks for the recent comments, and emails, I so appreciate it.
