Lazy Sunday

Sorry for not posting yesterday. I have had several people tell me they were worried after hearing he had a bad day and then there was no follow up. He started another course of steroids and he's been doing quite a bit better (relative to how he'd been previously). His vent settings are lower and his oxygen is in the 30's (wow!). They are still talking like they are moving forward with his PDA procedure this week so we're praying very hard on that one. Please continue to pray for Rhys' successful recovery from the procedure. They also started feeds again today, although only at 2cc per feeding. But, I guess that is better than no feeds. They want his tummy to get some action before the surgery. Little man has enjoyed some tummy time today, and he just loves it! Oh, and last bit of news... he's weighing in at 2lb 8oz and is a whopping 14 inches long!

No kidding!!! We all start to worry. Looks like today is a worry-free day. That's a good thing. Rhys looks like such a baby! Wow..he's come so far. Just a sweet little newborn. Hope you all carve out some quiet,alone time to regenerate your mind and body. Hug each other today...and each day. We love you

Keeping you all in prayer. Rhys is a fighter and that is so important.
He is growing and that is such good news. We will pray you all through the PDA surgery.
May God give you the strength that you need moment by moment.
Love and blessings,
Kathy Kolkhorst

I was going to email you today to see how much he weighed. In every picture he looks like he is getting bigger and his color looks good too. I will continue to pray that Rhys has a smooth and successful surgery!
