Zachary has been doing really well the past few days. He has continued his healthy eating and sleeping, and got his new cast put on Monday (red ones this week!). Nicole stopped by Monday evening and delivered some wonderful gifts that Mommy and Daddy can use to track Zachary's growth and development. On Wednesday Zach had three visitors, first of whom was Pat from Sanchez (Mommy's school), who brought by some gifts from all the wonderful staff, and some well wishes from the students! Last night Ron and Yvonne came by and brought dinner for Mommy and Daddy. They were fortunate enough to catch Zach just after his evening nap and were able to spend some time with him while he was awake, which sems to be a rare occurence for visitors!
Overall, Zachary's health continues to improve. He seems to be a little fussy on Monday nights and Tuesday mornings, but we're figuring he must be a little sore from his new casts, and having his feet repositioned. He had an appointment with Dr. Handler today and everything checked out wonderfully. His incision looked great, his head circumference is perfect, and he weighed in at 9lbs. 15oz, albeit with his casts and clothes on. We're guessing he is closer to 9lbs. even. He has a head ultrasound scheduled for two weeks out, and until then we continue to pray for his full healing, and enjoy all the fun moments we are having with our "normal" baby boy. Zachary sends out lots of hugs and kisses to you all! - Brian + Kimmie
