Monday's Update

Braden had a great night last night, and has had an excellent day today. He took his entire bottle by mouth today at 11am and took 56 out of 70CCs at his 2pm feeding. He's still managing to keep everything down...phew...we are so happy!

Our little boy just keeps growing. He's up to about 9lbs 2 oz. It's hard for us to see the growth, but we've had two people comment today...they haven't seem him lately and commented on how chubby his cheeks are getting. Rich has the camera and I think he'll download some more pics of our lil' cutie pie tonight.

As for the "H" word (home). We heard whispers of it today. If he keeps up the excellent work this week, they mentioned early next week. Yes, that's one more week here, but we're just so happy he's making progress. It's hard to believe that we've been here 4 weeks today. When the doctors mentioned the 3-5 week recovery, they weren't kidding!

Thanks for continuing to keep us in your thoughts and prayers,

Great news, Steph! Sounds like Braden is geting the hang of it now. Looks like that light at the end of the tunnel (home) is getting closer. We're all praying for that day - love & prayers are with ya. Auntie Chris
