Yesterday Ma held Jimmie for a few hours while Rachael filled out paperwork for "First Steps".
The lady was very positive about Jimmie's ability at such a young age to suck, swallow and breath. Many children born as early as Jimmie go home on a feeding tube. We understand that we are very lucky and we are blessed! And she commented that his muscle tone is good. Jimmie's muscle tone was commented on from the very beginning. Remember how impressed the doctor was that he could bend his elbows after he was born? And the "Small But Mighty" post with the video of him lifting and turning his head?! Go Jimmie go!
The great news today is that the home health nurse came and Jimmie's assessment went GREAT! He weighs . . . drum roll . . . 5 lbs 10 oz!!!!! He's gained 4 oz since Monday! Wooohooo!
Here's our little cutie- relaxing Jimmie style.
I can't wait to see Jimmie again. The last time was the night he came home. Pray my kiddos stay healthy and we'll get to go hang with Jimmie Monday! I'll get lots of pictures!
