11.20.09 - TGIF!

It's Friday!  Liam had his second appointment with the Cardiologist this morning.  He got a great report.  Liam now weighs 9 lbs 14 oz., gaining about an ounce a day - right on track - we are SO blessed!  At each of his cardiologist appointments he gets an EKG and an Echocardiogram, as well as his oxygen levels checked.  Everything was right on target for where he needs to be.  I also upped his feeding this week to 90 ml per feeding and will probably be going up again next week - as I can tell he is getting hungrier now.  We meet with the pediatrician for his 2 month appointment a week from Monday - I can't beleive he is almost 8 weeks old already!

The feeding tube is going good...and after I posted last, that very next day, I was getting Liam ready to start feeding and was carrying him, I looked down and his tube was out!  He had pulled it out in a second's time....Ahhh!  I was just about to re-tape it as I noticed earlier he could easily slide a finger in the loop and catch it...and low and behold he figured that one out real quick!  I immediately called Dustin at work and he came home so we could put it back in (Unfortunately, it is a two man job...who would think with such a tiny baby??).  Thankfully, we re-inserted it easily and got a good check test to make sure it was in right....There goes our nice trip to the ER. 

We are really looking forward to this weekend and next week.  Dustin's sister and brother-in-law are coming to stay with us and we will have his family and my parents together at our house for Thanksgiving dinner.  I love the holidays...and we have SOOOO much to be thankful for...this Thanksgiving is truly giving thanks to our Lord for ALL His blessings!
