This picture of Dean was taken on November 27, 2002. He's off the ventilator but still has the nasal canula for oxygen. Notice the size of the pacifier? It's a preemie pacifier. At this point Dean was receiving 3 cc's of half-strength breast milk. I held him for 30 minutes that day.

This picture of Jack was taken the same day. That's my hand on the left. I held him for 45 minutes that day. At this point he wasn't receiving any breast milk at all - just the fats and lipids. We were hoping that he would start getting some breast milk the next day.
