Day 32

Well much more of the same today. Rhys likes to snooze alot and he will definitely let you know when you've interrupted his comfort. He LOVES his tummy time. His blood pressure was on the low side today and the doctors have their eye on it but are not doing anything about it just yet. They want him to correct it himself first. He is getting his lasix treatments twice a day for his lungs. Lasix is a diuretic that is supposed to get the fluid off his lungs. The problem is he is not peeing! We need little man to pee for us. I gave him 3 pep talks today to encourage him to pee. I hope he got the message and pees for us tonight! The doctors are going to resume feedings tomorrow and we are happy for that, Rhys needs to grow! Candice and I can't believe there are over 100 votes on the poll. We had no idea so many people were reading it! We are just amazed and thankful for everyone's support and prayers. Trust us, they have not been overlooked! We need to keep praying for his lungs to get better and for Rhys to grow new healthy lung tissue.

It is so hard to tell who he looks like with the tape on his face...but I THINK he looks like daddy! I just can't wait until he's big enough for his Aunt Rachel to hug him!!!

I have to agree with Rachel...Baby Rhys looks like Cody, but definitely has mommy's hair! So precious...Rhys needs to hurry up and grow. The McCoy's have a new dog they want him to play with! :)

All our love and support,
Jennie and Bernie
