5 June 1997 - My first "hold" of my baby
6 June 1997 - Day 4
Was told Jay has a heart murmur due to a valve in his heart not closing on birth (which is what normally happens in full term babies). Apparantly this is common in prem babies. They will start a drug to close it later today after the morphine is stopped (they have slowly weaned this down over the past 2 days).
His weight has dropped to 1.01 kgs.
I was very depressed today. Everytime a card or flowers arrived I just cried.
Grandad F and Uncle B visited Jay today - first time. I think they were both shocked. Who can blame them, Jay doesn't even look like a real baby.
