Day 20




Bigger! Today when I walked into the nursery I noticed it in his face - he's bigger! Woo hoo! A whole 4lb 14 oz! Joshua had a tough day today concerning some breathing issues - but he's in good hands (God's and the nurses and Dr's in the hospital!) So thankful that he was born in 2008 and that there has been so many medical advances in the world of preemie babies! Joshua is back on some medical air by nasal prongs just to give him a little pressure to keep those little alveoli in his lungs open, and they've increased his caffiene (cup of coffee in the morning as one of the nurses calls it). There's a few more tricks up their sleeves to help him if he needs it too.

We are so excited to have Grandma and Grandpa W home - we had a fun Super Bowl party at our house with them, Auntie Allison, Uncle Glen, and Grandma V!

Thanks so much for the prayers and comments, love and support. You have no idea how much it helps to know that we are loved and that we CAN do this!
