Tomorrow Luca gets his final heart echo telling us if he is going to need surgery. Anze is getting his follow up brain CT to check on the progress or lack thereof of his brain bleed. We are asking for prayers for both of these. God is in control and healing our boys and we are confident He will continue to do so! I know I've said it before but thank you all for your love, support and prayers. We are truly blessed to have you all in our lives.
A GREAT DAY FOR US! Anze is tolerating feedings and is now getting 4cc's every 3 hours (that's roughly 1/4 of an ounce I believe...never been good at conversions!). He spent the morning trying to get the feeding tube out of his nose! Poor guy. Soon he will be big enough to eat like a normal baby!
Luca tolerated his vent all day yesterday and today. The albuterol(Sp?) is helping to open the closed areas of his lung and his breathing is at a normal rate. They are weening the vent and the sedation.
Jr got a bubble mower today and enjoyed mowing the lawn. He also got a new car seat (a slim design that allows for 3 seats to fit across... HALLELUJAH it works. The infant seats and his big boy seat all fit! Now where to fit mom and dad ;)
Neither mom or dad got the opportunity to hold either boy today, which breaks our hearts but other things happened today that were out of our control and we are just grateful that our boys are thriving. (If you'd like to keep the family of the little girl that lost her battle in the NICU today in prayers as well I have no doubt that family needs all the prayers in the world tonight... ). Thank you Lord for the precious lives you have blessed us with. Watch over them tonight and always. Lord be with the family that lost their baby girl today; only you know the reason Lord....
