Yesterday I finally got to hold Joshua for the first time since before his surgery. We were not allowed to hold him for a lot of reasons, but the last thing that was keeping us from being able to was his central lines. These lines went directly to the heart and there is a high risk of infection, so we have to limit the amount of time holding and touching to decrease the chance of them getting infected. However, we don't have to worry about that anymore because they got taken out yesterday! So, I spent the afternoon snuggling :) It was awesome!
