The short version: Ben is still in the NICU. Tina is home from the hospital. Mike has logged many, many miles in the car. Zeke now has binkie privileges almost all the time.
The longer version is complex and will be written in the appropriate journals. For now, we rejoice every time Ben poops (4 times so far) and we are appreciating the kindness, love and support of family, friends, and the staff in the NICU.
Today's good news: surgery is not likely to be needed.
