Jimmie is still struggling when he eats. There are times when he finally settles down and does okay but it is a huge, long and stressful ordeal. And he's not even really doing any better with the bottles at this point. So Rachael is pretty concerned. She'll be calling the Pedi tomorrow and maybe she'll take him in. At this point we are just going to need to rule some things out. Ear infection and reflux being the 2 more common things that come to mind.
Please pray for Rachael too. It is so hard for her after all Jimmie has been through, to not immediately go to the worst possible scenarios in her mind. There is unfortunately precedent for micro-preemies to suddenly stop eating or to have severe reflux etc.. that cause long term issues that are very overwhelming. I think these worse case scenarios are at the forefront of Rachael's mind and it's really hard.
Please pray for Rachael to have no fear and a sound mind. Pray for she and Justin and Jimmie's Doctor to have wisdom and discernment in this matter, and that little Jimmie can get back to good, productive eating sessions with his mommy. He is still so tiny. He is a month old today -adjusted age-- and just 7 lbs 1 oz. He really needs to continue eating well to thrive!
Thank you for fighting for Rachael, Justin and Jimmie!
