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.

Days 78 & 79

Day 78: The past couple of days have been.... Not my best. I just felt burdened with everything going on. But today, praise God was a new day and much brighter! The doctors took the pressure on Wyatt's cannula down to a pressure of .2. They have plans for him to be off of it by the end of the weekend. :). We just hung out and did more talking, laughing and sleeping. He also has his 5th good nursing day. :).

Day 79: it's been a gloomy and lazy rainy Saturday but Wyatt doesn't know any better! He got a bath today as soon as we got there so that he no longer smelled like milk and he could put on his new Aggies onesie to celebrate their BeatingTHO Arkansas!! He also napped and we breastfed and just hung out. They didn't make any changes today. We did trade his nasal cannula dots (the circular stickers that stick to his face, to hold it in place) for a mustache. We felt that his poor little cheeks needed a little break and if all goes as planned, he'll be off his cannula tomorrow or Monday. The medical team along side us is trying to figure out what would be best for Wyatt, to come home with the NG tube (nose) or for him to have the surgery to have a tube put directly into his belly. So please pray for help with that decision. They both have pros and cons. :).
