Here is our new grandson, Miles, with big brother Jonah and Mom. Miles was born on October 29, about three weeks early.
It's really hard to see his face with him all bundled up, but that is to keep him warm as he has a hard time regulating his own temperature. These pictures were taken Tuesday when he was allowed to come home just for a few hours. Yes, unbelievable, but an hour after he arrived home there was a call from the UCLA NICU asking Jeff and Sherry to bring him back because a lab test indicated that he might have an infection. We were all in shock at this upsetting news.
His parents were allowed to wait until rush hour traffic was over to make the return trip. They returned home without Miles, about 11 pm.
Now it looks like the test might have been wrong. He might get to go home again on Saturday if all goes well.
Since the nurses who care for these preemies are so great and so skilled, he is in really good hands. A few more days of their TLC will just make him stronger for when he does get to be home.
Here is the first quilt I have made for little Miles. It is a print with fire, police and paramedics on it. My son, Miles' father, is a dispatcher for the police department, so his son's have gotten quilts with a law enforcement theme.
Here is the quilt that I brought to work on. I cut the patches at home before leaving for San Diego last month. I did a lot of the sewing while we were there. I was only home for one week before getting the call that Miles had been born during the night. It was back to California that day for us.
I don't get much time to quilt (or to blog!) except during Jonah's naptime, but he is wonderful fun. I am so lucky to have four wonderful grandkids!
