Amazing Little Man

Rachael has decided to weigh Jimmie only once a week- on Fridays. This helps her to not worry about the little ups and downs all through the week. He is supposed to be averaging at least 20 grams a day. She was a bit more nervous today because if he had a dismal gain that could be an indicator that going without oxygen is too much for his little body. However- she didn't need to worry! Jimmie weighed 6 pounds 13 1/2 ounces! That is just barely under 20 grams a day. We'll take it!!! We are now assured that he is doing very well without his oxygen. She also took his pulse ox every half hour from 10am to 3pm today. She did that last Friday and he averaged 95% oxygen. Today he averaged 97%! Yeah! Go Jimmie go. I am so proud of our little man. He is just amazing!



  1. Whoohooo! Keep on chunkin' Jimmie, we love you!!!!!!!!!!

  2. What wonderful news! He certainly is an amazing little man, and we serve a mighty God. Way to go, Jimmie!!

    Justin and Rachael, keep up the good work. =)

    We love you,
    Adrian and Janelle
