Big news in Will's world today, and I mean big - relatively speaking, of course. He weighed in at 936 grams today, which, for those of you who don't have conversion charts memorized, is about 2 lbs, 1 oz. It took him 45 days, but Will finally cracked the 2-pound mark. To celebrate, the nurses took away the layer of plastic wrap that had been over him in his warmer bed to hold the heat in, which meant much better access for parental hands looking for a part of this growing boy to hold. He continues to eat well and breathe well, which means he should keep growing at a steady pace. He does have his cranky moments now and again that force the nurses to turn up his oxygen or give him the occasional dose of a sedative, but for the most part he's just chugging right along.
