Evening Troubles and Morning Improvements

The evening last night was pretty rough. Timmy was pretty uncomfortable and having a hard time falling asleep. But then once he did fall asleep, he slept until morning. Then this morning his head and neck control was showing some marked improvement. He held up his head by himself for several seconds! And yesterday during his bath I heard a short but distinct giggle!  His feeding pump is up to 40 ml per hour - just 5 ml below the goal. The doctors seem agreeable to trying to get us home for the birthday celebrations, so we will see if that can happen. One day at a time. :-)
