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.

NINE WEEKS/SEVENTY DAYS
NINE WEEKS/SEVENTY DAYS: it's been an exhausting day for both James and me both. He has a lot going on at work coupled with Wyatt stuff and I am trying to prepare for Wyatt to come home which involves picking a pediatrician, figuring out all kinds of insurance stuff, general house & family things and we're trying to figure out if we should buy a new car or not... God will not give more then we can handle and what he does give us, makes us stronger! Anyway, Wyatt was awake when I got there today and was in the process of receiving a blood transfusion. He was in and out of sleep throughout the transfusion and I got to hold him once it was finished. We chatted and then he fell asleep on my shoulder. The doctors put him back n the previous feeding schedule- 3 hours on getting 90 mL then one hour off. That seemed to work better for him. Next week he's going to get another echo and an MRI. Tomorrow we will have our family meeting with doctors and nurses to discuss our plan of action for coming home. It could be just a couple of weeks now. Life at home won't be easy either, in fact it will probably be harder but we'll be home and we'll get to be with him all the time. :) we are on board for whatever is best for our sweet blessing!
