10.10.09 - Perfect Ten

Liam is 10 days old today!  I can't believe it has been that long...or that short in reference to his recovery time.  He is doing great today again.  They bumped up his feeding amount AGAIN to 50 ml.  He is still having a hard time getting all that food down, but he is taking more and more each time.  The nurse said every 3 feedings he takes the whole amount.  But they are pleased with how he is taking the food he is getting - no reflux or spitups really to speak of, which is great because usually heart babies have a hard time with that.

We get to hold him whenever we want now too - which is SOO cool! He has a few monitors still attached and that's it.  They told us he is going to be moving back down to the NICU tomorrow - which is definately a downgrade, so that is good.  From there, they will work with us on breastfeeding and teach us what we need to know so we can finally go home!  They haven't given us a date we will go home yet, but we're hopeful we won't be here much longer =)

It amazes me how God created these little babies to be so resilient...Less than a week ago, our baby had heart surgery, and here he is today, not even needing pain medication!!  Unbelievable....God is sooo GOOD and he is faithful!

"Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."  

Lamentations 3:22-23
