UPDATE ON CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW
Captain Jack has made it past the critical 10 days and is thriving! He loves being held, and is sleeping through the night, and eating time is stretching out longer between feedings. He's getting more feathers, and continue to respond to my daughter's voice. She was reading about the coloring and when he gets more feathers, they may have to change it's name to Captain Jackie.
You can see he eats from a little paint brush and is trying his little legs crawling around the box and trying to grip his little feet on my daughter's finger. Julie wraps him in a Kleenex and puts him in her blouse and gets her housework done. He sleeps and feels the warmth of her body and I swear, if that little guy could talk, he would say "Julie, are you my Mother?" It's hard work, but she's committed. Getting to sleep all night helps. More updates to follow.
