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 103 & 104

Day 103: Wyatt was sleepy today! I think the up all nighters are catching up to him. So we spent most of the day snuggled up sleeping. He spit up twice while I was there, both were while he was on his formula and none at all today while he was on breast milk. I just feel like that is telling us something. James is very busy at work this week so he did not get there until 6:30 which puts us just now warming up dinner. All worth it because our man "should" be home at the second half of next week. That's if we can figure out his feeds. Praying that boy can keep it down and he continues to gain weight! We can see the light!!! :) An audiologist came and gave him his hearing test today. He wanted nothing to do with it so we tricked him into falling asleep and gave him the test. He did awesome!! That's great considering he keeps failing his no cannula test!

Day 104: Wyatt slept most of the day again, probably bc he was up a lot last night. Two and a half hours of that was uninterrupted and in my arms. I sat there imagining how we would be sitting at home, laying on the floor, the couch, in his room- so excited for that day and so excited that day will be MONDAY! As of right now, he comes home Monday. I cannot even believe it! Such mixed emotions. Obviously excitement and joy but also worry and fear of the unknown. This whole journey has been a walk of faith but let me tell you, this next step is the biggest leap of faith we've ever taken. I know we will ask the same question all parents do, "Oh crap, what now?!?". We are working with the NP's on getting everything in place, home health, medical supplies, insurance, ect... I'm about to buy target out of hand sanitizer. Wyatt had my breast milk all day today and did not spit up once!! He's still on formula at night, so we'll see how that goes. We are just putting one foot in front of the other walking in blind faith! So thankful tomorrow has already been written!!
