good weekend

There really is not much new to post. Charlie had a good weekend and is continuing his slow and steady pace. The drip feedings are going okay. We are still at just 2 cc's every hour, but he is tolerating it. He still has some problems with the air and mucous in his stomach, but we were reassured tonight that it is typical baby stuff. His red blood cell count is still low. We are hoping his body will start producing some on its own so that he will not need a transfusion (and another IV for the transfusion). He was taken off his t-com monitoring this morning. This measured the CO2 in his blood and they don't see a need to keep close tabs on it anymore. He is looking better and better everyday!

We are keeping our fingers crossed that Baby K stays stable through the night in hopes that her surgery can be done tomorrow. Charlie is rooting her on and trying to set a good example! 

We got some good pics this weekend! Enjoy!


We were holding out for another Orange victory...



We got to bathe him and Nurse Mary changed all his tubes and tape, so we got to get some pictures of his naked face!! He was not very happy about the whole thing unfortunately!



A nice Sunday afternoon nap in the sunshine...
