Jimmie is doing good except for that darn feeding tube is really starting to get old! It keeps slipping and hurting his throat. It's really sad to see him crying and upset because of that tube. He's just still too little to take his feeds by mouth. Even when he does nurse or take a bottle he still has to be given milk in his tube because he tuckers out before he can drink all he needs too. Poor Rachael is very weary of messing with this tube. So lets pray that Jimmie can get strong enough to take all of his feeds by mouth soon. And that in the meantime they find ways to make living with this tube more comfortable.
One of the Nurses is starting an organization in the NICU for parents. She herself had 30 week twins some years ago. She asked Rachael if she would be on the board as a NICU Parent Advisor. Wow! What an honor! Of course we all know Rachael's status as a "Supermom", but it now seems others at the NICU think so as well. (-: She really is an amazing mommy! She will be an amazing advocate for NICU parents!
Here are some pictures that Jimmie's Mimi (Amy) took today.
Thank you for praying for Jimmie!
