Good Evening Everyone,
Just wanting to let you know that Emory is about the same today. The are changing some of his meds, in a good way. His weight is up a little bit. They are still waiting on Claude's blood donation to arrive so that Emory can have his transfusion. They increased his bottle feedings to 6 bottles a day and 2 tube feedings a day. So, that is good and even better if he eats them all. Hopefully, we are getting closer to going home.
I had the privilege today of talking and praying with another NICU mom whose baby has been in there for about a week. Since we are almost to 4 weeks of being in the NICU now, I can understand the emotions she is experiencing after just giving birth. Due to privacy issues, I won't give any names. However, if you think of it when you pray for Emory, pray for the other NICU parents and babies as well.
One great surprise today was that Gremmy (my mom) drove in this morning. Claude knew about it ahead of time, but kept it a surprise for the boys and I. Of course, the boys are loving having her here. In addition to having extra help while we go to the hospital, Emory has had an extra touch time with family and has enjoyed being held by his Gremmy. So, that was a nice surprise this morning.
Please keep us in your prayers specifically for Emory to eat more, gain weight, and be able to come home soon. We have a long road ahead of us, but that is our immediate prayer for today. All the rest will have to be taken one day or even one hour at a time.
