James and I began this blog at the very beginning of our pregnancy with Wyatt to share and update our new adventures as we became pregnant and start the new season of parenthood. Sixteen weeks into pregnancy, I had to go into surgery to ensure our son would not come too early and shortly after, we found out Wyatt has Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). This is our humble attempt at being transparent and hopefully sharing the joys and love of Christ through this roller coaster ride we're on. And now to share even more with the new miracle on the way.

Day 55

Day 55: BJ (James' dad) got to visit with our sweet Wyatt. His feeds are still on 18 cc's an hour but with 30 calories now. They are letting his TPN (liquid nutrition) run out tonight! Yippee!! If he still gains weight without it, his central line will come out and we'll be down to his NG tube (milk tube) and his nasal cannula! Not saying he will, but potentially he could come home with both of those... I'd prefer him to not need any support but him coming home would be amazing! He was still sleepy today, probably bc he loves his nurse Amber and stayed up late talking to her, such a flirt! He also is famous in the NICU! He now has his picture on the wall for everyone to see, showing off his beads (he gets them for each day he is there & all the stuff he does or goes through)- he's up to 303. I'll take a picture of it tomorrow! Please continue to help us pray for him! We just need him to keep growing (he's 7lbs 6.5oz now) by taking in his milk and breathing at a good capacity!!! :)
