ex machina

the eric update - day 289: The Three R's.

no, not relief, recovery and reform - that's something completely different.

after his latest ( and hopefully last ) surgery odin is getting lots of rest, relaxation and recovery. and meds mixed with milk in a bottle.

he likes showing off his rather impressive skills at feeding himself. you can almost see him saying with his eyes, "keep your hands off my bottle pops, i can do this all by myself - thank you very much anyways."

well the the three r's must be working some sort of magic because after many vain attempts to get him interested in solids, he finally decided that, yes, a hunk of banana in his mesh feeder was quite delicious.

he savored every last bit. well, almost every last bit. the bits that weren't savored were smeared from head to toe.

you'll notice he's in a state of undress. in addition to being unseasonably warm today ( 80 degrees fahrenheit/ 27 degrees celcius ), he's also running a low grade fever ( 99-100 degrees fahrenheit ) and has let us know that today is a clothing optional day.

although not a concern at this point, the fever doesn't seem to succumb to the medicinal powers of tylenol with codeine and if it persists for another day, then it could become a cause for concern. but for now, we're not going to get too worked up about it.

I hope his fever is down today and the Three Rs continue to work their magic.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
