We took Nicholas out for a little while yesterday and today. Yesterday we went to the outdoor mall and walked around and had lunch outside. Today we took him to the zoo and looked at the outside animals. He seemed to enjoy it. He is still obsessed with his hand and it is always in his mouth. He will also suck on our shirt if we are holding him. He started grabbing at the toys attached to his mirror last night. He rolled to his side this morning and he has learned how to take his cannula out of his nose and half the time it is up between his eyes.
We went to see the pediatric surgeon today and he is pleased with how his hernia has healed. We don't have to go back to see him unless something else happens. We also went to the neurosurgeon's office and saw the nurse. She took his stitches out and said his swelling looks fine and it could take a few weeks to go away. We go back next Friday to see the doctor. Tomorrow we go to the lung doctor and the hearing center.
