So, I leave town and Noah does "all the good" as my mom says. :) haha. Noah has made so much progress this week and I am just so excited to get to see him tomorrow. I am pretty positive that ALL the love and spoiling Noah got this week from his mimi and tpaw was the trick. I am going to have to step up my game this week to even come close to that! :) haha. Here is some of the progress I can think of to share:
no more TPN or lipids :)
up on feeds
lower on oxygen
lowered some pain meds
lowered the steroid dose
lots of holding
no picc line
working on bottle feeding (slowly)
a bath tonight
santa hat :) hehe
I'm just so thankful for all the progress. I am fully aware that God's timing his perfect and we might still have a ways to go, but we are seeing, before our eyes, God working in our son. Thankful and humbled.
So, going home this last week was hard, yet it was really really good too. I was so thankful to be in my home, with my Nick and Ava. We missed our baby, but we know we will get him home soon enough. It was great to cook in my kitchen, have friends over, go to family's house, enjoy and soak up the love of our church family and sleep in my own bed. hehe :)
I am thankful that I can come back here fresh and ready to keep going on this journey here. Thank you to each of you for your prayers and support through all of this. Love you all.
