Big Gain!

In the last 2 days Jimmie has gained 6 ounces!!!!! WOW WOW WOW!!! He is 3 pounds 14 ounces. Go Jimmie go!

I went and visited him today and he is just so doggone cute I can't stand it!

Jimmie did so good with his second nursing session today. He really was sucking, swallowing and breathing for quite some time! Next week they will really start trying to feed him by mouth at many more of his feedings. Two things he needs to be able to do before he goes home are eating and holding his body temperature. We would love to see him weaned of his oxygen too because he can't go home in the hood. He'd have to go back to the cannula that has nasal prongs and we really don't want that because of his nose issues.

Here are some more of the pictures Nate took:

Tomorrow is Jimmie's 2 month birthday and I'm preparing another summary post for his 2nd month! He has come so far. He is truly amazing and miraculous. Thank you Lord!!!

Thank you all for your prayers. We are so blessed.
