The Big Move

So the staff at RCH had been talking to me about the possability of Linden being transferred to the Abbotsford NICU as it would be closer for me and with Linden doing so well he really didn't need to be in a Level 3 NCU he could be in a Level 2 NICU which is what Abbotsford is. So Burton and I had been talking and thought we may like to check it out. RCH would keep us there as long as they could however that all changed on Monday June 7th as there were so many preemies in the province who are sick and needing a Level 3 NICU the choice was taken out of our hands Linden was going to transferred that day. As well he was going to have his first eye examination to make sure everything was developing properly. His eye exam went well he has no signs of Retina Apathy, his eyes are still immature, both that is expected given his age and should correct as he gets older. The transfer was a bit stressful for myself. He was transferred in a Isolette and the ambulance he got transferred plug outlets were not working so the Isolette and monitors were going off batteries. Halfway there they went out so we had to put on the lights and sirens and start really moving. Our poor lil'monkey looked like a curnel of popcorn being popped I was worried he would get shaken baby syndrome but the NICU nurse who was accompanying us assured me he was fine. He made it safe and sound:) Here are some pics of the adventure....

First Week Of June

Sorry I have been neglecting Linden's blog lately a lot has been going on. So to go back to the begining of this month. On June 1st Linden came out of his Isolette!!! It was a very exciting day for us and proving how he is continuing to do so well. Going into a cot also brings new rewards for his family and himself. At RCH this means that the grandparents are allowed to hold now as well. Only his Dad and I are allowed to feed him but afterwards he can have a cuddle with them:) So on thursday Linden's Grandma came for a visit and was able to hold him, the following day his Grammy was able to come do the same:) Here are some pics of those first few days......
