5 Pounds!


As you can see, Liam likes to lay with his arms up.


Liam now weighs 5 lb 1 oz! He had a bit of a ruff weekend. Sunday night he continued to drop his heart rate so his nurse decided he needed some blood work done. His hemoglobin was a little low, so they started him on iron. They said this may be why he was D-stating (dropping heart rate). They also put him on caffeine again. This helps him to remember to breathe. It takes him a few days to catch up. Today was better than Monday and hopefully tomorrow will better yet. He is definitely getting chubby cheeks and already holds his head up. Our new goal is for Liam to come home when they say he can come home! (Thank you Mr. Obvious)

Nothing like a little caffeine to get you going. Hope he comes home soon.

So exciting!!!! Hope that he continues to gain weight and that his hemoglobin & heart rate starts to be where it should be!!!!! We will continue to pray for him and for you guys as I'm sure you are ready to be home, as a family, and back to a "normal" life (can life be normal with Tim???)

5lbs. already! Wow! That's great news. Glad to hear that he's doing well and even after a tiny rough patch all is still looking good. Can't wait for the post stating that he's coming home. He sure is a doll. Praying daily for you all.
