Closer and Closer to Coming Home

Hey Ya'll, just thought I would stop by and update everyone on Braelyn's progress!!

hey ya'll my beautiful little grandson is now.......

2 pounds 10 ounces............He is doing really good and growing stronger everyday. Christy said the doctors have said his hernia is "reducing" which means it might be correcting itself. YEEEEAAAA!!!!!.. I was there Tuesday and He is really working hard on mastering his "sucking" technique. He sucks good, but doesn't have the power behind it to get the milk out of the nipple, but in time I have no doubt he'll master that too!!!!

Braelyn Update

Well It's been a while since I put anything new up but everything has been going really good. Braelyn is still breathing on his own and is all the way off ventilated air. He still has the cannula's but he just gets some extra room air. He is now feeding on formula, unfortunately Christy was unable to provide anymore breast milk and the adjustment for Braelyn was a little shakey at first. He needed a little help using the bathroom after the first few formula feeds, just as he did when he started feeding on breast milk.

2 POUNDS!!!!! Braelyn decided - NO MORE VENT!!!

Well I got to see my little angel this weekend and he looks really really good. He is sooo cute. He finally hit the 1000 gram mark and weighs 2 pounds 4 ounces..actually he weighed in at 2.6 but they said some was fluid and they gave him some lasix so he peed two ounces away...he def. has his own little personality and again when he's made he's mad. he threw a little temper tamtrum when we were there but thank goodness his auntie cayla sounds like his mom and all she had to do was talk to him and he calmed down. this little boy knows his mom and loves her very much.

Mommy held Braelyn close for the first time!!!!!!!!!!

Well 57 days after giving birth to an amazing little boy weighing just more than a can of soda my baby got to do something she's waited sooo long to do. Christy got to hold Braelyn next to her chest. Skin on skin, feeling her son wiggle against her. She felt his little fingers clutching to her. Through her tears Christy held her son close for an hour today. Honestly nothing else in this world mattered but those 60 minutes. God is good and I so truly thank him for those moments.........

Granny's Big Boy Update

Well Leonard, Myself Cayla and My Mother-in-Law went and seen Braelyn today. He is sooo big ( well compared to his birth size) but he actually has pudgy cheeks and a double chin. He is all the way down on the ventilator and hopefully soon they will try and wean him completely from it. He is a feisty lil tyke. The nurse had given him a "wipe bath" and believe me Braelyn was not happy about it.

Granny's Braelyn Update

1 pound 12 ounces!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEP..Braelyn is pushin closer to that 2 pounds. Of course he still looks like a pip-squeak compared to the other 1 and 2 pounders but every bit adorable. He is in his new Condo..His own private incubator and seems to be quite content with his new digs. He is also up to 4 cc every 3 hours as far as feeding. He is still doing good, Thank You Jesus.
