This is a video that Alisha took at 4:30am of Roscoe in our room on Sunday night. Across the hall was room 106 where all of the usual chatter, crying, and background noise was going on. In our room it was quiet and dark. Alisha noted that he slept really well overnight and didn't wake up crying. He was peaceful like this all night.
He is laying in a standard new baby container with his beloved monkey pacifier sitting on his chest. We are hoping that this means he'll be able to rest more fully when he comes home, and hopefully that will translate into accelerated growth.
Thank you for everyone's comments of support on facebook. It was helpful for Alisha and I to see the mutual frustration of Roscoe's supporters. As Romans 12:15 says, "Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn". It was also very helpful to be reminded how thankful we should be that he is healthy enough to talk about coming home, and to remind us that maybe Roscoe's departure from the NICU has been postponed so that he (or we) can effect someone else positively.
