Weigh-In


So, Steven and I had a bet going as to how much Noah would weigh at his weekly Sunday weigh-in. His weight last time was 2lb and .(point)2 oz. Steven said he would weigh 2lb 3oz. Jenny said he would weigh 2lb 4.5oz. Steven said, "no, you've over bid." Well, this evening the nurse said that he now weighs 2lb and 4.5oz! hehe, I won! :)
The doctor also talked to us. She said she was very pleased with how he was doing. He's eating everything they give him (10 ml now). His brain scan looked good last week so she wasn't sure if the neurosurgeon was going to do another this week. She said she wanted him to gain more weight before she put him on the c-pap so he wouldn't fail again. Tomorrow is the last day of his antibiotics. He's coughing a lot of that stuff in his lungs up still. (I know that sounds gross, but we're really thankful for it).
When we were there tonight he was so feisty he decided to scoot about 3 inches on his own. He's such a wiggle-worm when he's feeling good. :)
So, we're thankful that he is doing so good now and we're praying God will continue to heal him. Thanks for your prayers and encouragement!!

Fernando said he is "one good-looking kid" That is a serious compliment, bc the only children my husband says are cute, are our own!

There is an absoluetly inspirational video at FoxNews.com about a 21-week preemie that is about to go home before her due date. I highly recommend you check it out.
