I finally got to leave the hospital yesterday. They said I was too cute and healthy to stick around a hospital full of sick people, especially those with the flu. My mommy and daddy worried so much that my kitty cats would be jealous of me. Last night, Cali and Angel (my kitties) made sure that mommy woke me to feed me, also if my oxygen alarm went off they made sure to wake mommy up. They smell me and look at me but they don't hiss or harm me. If I don't show any signs of allergy or respiratory distress then we can keep the kitties. We had a few visitors last night and I wanted to show off so I pulled out my NG tube. Mommy put one back down because it was time for my 9PM feed. I had a circumcision then an eye exam all in one day, what was my mommy thinking. My eyes are still immature and the eye doctor does not have any explanation for it. My mommy had to watch whole exam and she cried. They opened my eyes with metal clips then used another metal clip to see other parts of my eyes. I have to another one. You other babies out there or so lucky that you don't have to one of these exams. My mommy is holding me and typing at the same time. I won't be at church or other places for awhile since I am on oxygen, a monitor and tube feedings. My mommy is hoping that I out grow my need for oxygen and a monitor. I hate to combine good news with bad news however this message is for Nurse Tara in Canada. I don't have direct way to contact you. Jasper , a baby that has been in the NICU at Seattle Children's for a very long time is in heaven now.
