4/11/18 - "Hearts For Heath"
Today was kind of a hum-drum day. A good day, but not much happening (which is good!). I have been getting a little "urppy" after feeding time now. We hope it's just normal baby stuff. Please pray for me to be able to keep milk down, that my poor little tummy is healthy enough to handle digesting it and that my body continues to respond well to being fed. I'm starting to get one of my heart medicines orally now, so it's very important that milk and it stay down. Mom was extra annoying today and kept "fixing me up". She likes to adjust my bedding and play with my hair, but I just want to sleep. I guess it's not so bad. I like the feeling of a comb running over my head; even though I don't have much hair. I like having my mittens off too and stretching my fingers out. My nurses usually keep my mittens on me...they say it's so I don't grab my tubes and pull them, but I know the real reason they have me wear them is so I look tough and ready to put up my dukes. I like to punch my arms out and show off sometimes; as I'm sure you've read. I had a session with Physical Therapy today, too. I was just not having it. Dad joked that I was grumpy today because I had been up late with my nurse last night visiting. I hadn't seen her in a while, so I guess that's probably it. Something else from today...Mom and Dad's old schools are both having their students make me some special decorations for my hospital room walls, to decorate. Right now my walls are blah yellow and empty. They are making some colorful "Hearts For Heath" and writing to me. I can't wait to see what they come up with! I'm so grateful for the kindness of everyone. When their art comes, Mom and Dad will hang them up for me and I'll put a picture on my blog to show you all. I'm very excited! Thinking about art inspired me to model for Mom today when she was taking pictures. Here's my favorite shot. Do you like it? Write to me and let me know :) Talk tomorrow!
