10/23 Update


Hello everyone,

Things went well today for our 2 week check up. No major issues or concerns. Everyone seemed a little surprised that we were approaching the mystical 5 kg (11+ lbs) mark already. This is usually the weight that they start talking about surgery two, which we have been told is going to fall in Dec. It is a waiting game though, two things are factors when the surgery can happen, weight and when his oxygen levels start to drop in his blood. I am willing to bet that we are in for his surgery around T-giving. I don't think he will make it to mid-Dec. without leveling out first. Whatever happens, happens though.


Thanks for checking in,

Rich

Braden is an example of how a baby can flourish with love. As each day passes, Braden and your love grows. You all are doing such a great job. Keep up the good work. Can hardly wait to hold that little guy and give hugs and kisses to you all.

My love and prayers,
Pat

Hi Petska family!
I'm sorry I missed you when you were in for your clinic visit, but it sounds like you're all doing very well! Thanks for posting so many pictures--Braden gets even cuter in each one! Let us know when you're coming in next, Melissa and I would both love to see you all!
Take care,
