The occupational therapist worked him over for a while. His muscle tone and sucking are coming along, but his gag reflex continues to lag behind. Apparently the blood in his ventricles is irritating his brain in such a way that this reflex is suppressed. We're hoping that he makes some progress on this front soon. In the meantime, he seems to be enjoying the milk though his feeding tube.
We also met a psychological development therapist today, but Hank was not really interested in waking up for her. She took his rejection pretty well.
Otherwise, we are beginning to get into a rhythm with Hank. We play with him every three hours around his feeding/vitals/diaper time, then let him sleep in between. This seems to provide him with the correct balance of activity and rest, and it gives us a chance to take care of our own business.
Today was Meade's birthday, and Henry made her a card (with a little help from his nurses). We had many visitors this evening, so we went for a quick birthday dinner at a nearby restaurant.
Here are some pictures from today:
