Evening update (Saturday 12/20)

Yesterday Max marked eight weeks in the NICU. Or, put another way, had he been born today, he would have been considered full term. Carolyn spent most of the day with Max. She considers herself to Max's laundress or scullery maid and she berated herself for not exchanging his laundry today. Carolyn is also getting pretty good at coaxing Max to suck on his pacifier. The NICU have a special green pacifier--Carolyn picked up several and put them in Max's stocking. (Don't tell Max: I don't want to ruin the surprise for him.)
