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 74: I got there today right at noon! His nurse said he was being Mr. Fussy McFussypants this morning unless she was holding him!!! So I held him just as much as time allowed me today and he was as happy as could be! He lost a little weight last night but I'm not worried about it. I also wonder about different nurses weighing & if there's a magian of error. He had another good nursing session today, yea! He also got an echocardiograph today. We don't know the results but should tomorrow. He has an MRI tomorrow at Children's, I'm going to walk with him over there and wait and walk back, then he's got a GI test on Wednesday and the same thing there, I'll go with him. All these test should help to determine when he can come home and if he'll need any surgeries. Oh yeh, he had a blood gas taken this morning and those numbers look good as well as a chest X-ray. It looks like his esophagus might be pushed over some, the GI test will tell us more on that. :)
