Too Early Part 3...

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.
