It's halloween, and we got Alex a costume. We took lots of pictures, and as usual, click on "more" below to see them.

+ 0 - 0 | § Feeling better...

Again, Alex has been improving over the past few days.  His doctor said that x-rays of his lungs look much clearer than they did five days ago, so the antibiotics appear to be working.  It was written in his chart that they plan to do the next gap-o-gram early next week, but we know better than to trust that they'd do that early in the week. 

All in all, things aren't bad.  Alex is generally pretty happy, and he gets cuter every day!

Alex seemed to be feeling much better this afternoon.  He's on a couple of antibiotics to clear up the pneumonia, and got the second round of immunizations, so he's had his share of needles.  Something really funny happened today though.  The hospital's family support people had a pizza and fruit dinner this evening and when we came back to Alex's bed, we found that he had managed to turn himself sideways in the crib and get himself completely out of his blanket wrapping.  He was so happy, though, that we just had to laugh.  What a good little boy!  In other news, Alex has now reached 6 lbs., 10.2 ounces...and is growing steadily.  He is actually fitting into some of his clothes now!

+ 0 - 0 | § Some bads news, with some good news

Alex has been having a little bit of a hard time breathing lately, so they did an x-ray, and it looks like there might be a small amount of fluid in his lungs. They think that it might just be something that he aspirated, but they have put him on antibiotics just in case. This means that he had to have an IV put in, which they have put in his hand this time. They say that he will be on them for a couple of days, just as a precautionary measure. This is a pretty scary thing to have happen, but the doctors assure us that this is a very common thing to have happen to babies in the NICU.

On an unrelated note, I was asked today to come to a second interview with GE at their central R&D facility near Albany, NY. I hear that they are are real bear when it comes to this interview, making past participants take qualifying exams on thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, reactor design, etc., courses that I haven't taken in 4 or more years. I'm glad to have this opportunity.
