Great News!

There is no more blood in Hank's brain ventricles, and the swelling is continuing to decrease! I held and rocked him today, and he was so sweet. He and Hayden both have oxygen hoods now. They look like little astronauts! The oxygen coming throught the prongs in their noses dries them out, and they get really bad boogers. The boogers clog up their noses, which makes them have to breathe out of their mouths, and then they don't get enough oxygen. So, the hoods are supplying moist air to reduce the boogers. Hayden doesn't seem to mind her hood, but we'll see just how long the wild man stays under his!
