New pics of Rhys


Rhys discovered the Zaky today and from what I've seen he loves it (is is lying across his legs in the pics). He is much more calm and has been relaxing since we got here (thank goodness), except when the nurse had to prick his foot. The head IV and right arm arterial line are gone so little man can move a little easier. He was all kinds of comfy when we got here this morning. He is getting blood gases only twice a day now and the nurse explained they are watching his stats to see how he is responding to the oscillator settings vs. drawing blood every 4-6 hours to test. He also got a pacifier today and seemed to love that as well. He is still breathing over the machine, but doesn't seem to be fighting it as much. Since the head IV came out today I noticed what looks like a little curl up on top of his head. I can't really tell if it is a curl or cow lick, but little man would be one lucky fellow to get mommy's hair. :o)

He's getting so big! He's just beautiful! I like that he likes the Zaky. Thought of him all weekend. I love ya'll!

He looks a lot better. Time to move off the "Little Man" sobriquet now that he is packing on the pound(s). I was thinking "G-Rhys-ed Lightening" or "Sandman" (as in the good guy from Logan's Run). Just a thought...

Rhys Outlaw you are doing some modeling and we are all eating it up! I can see a change in your appearance every time your mommy/daddy posts a new picture. They are so proud of you and they have reason to be. You are a beautiful little angel! Please know that I am praying to Jesus for your continued improvement. You are a very lucky little man to have the parents that you do, they are remarkable. I love you all! Aunt Tina.

Ok, these are the sweetest pictures ever. I just want to eat him up! One day, I will. I love his hair, I do believe that it is yours Candice. He does look a lot better, I must agree with Brian. We are holding Rhys in our prayers every night. He sure has a wonderful mommy and daddy as well. Lots of love to all 3 of you.

The pictures are beautiful! Candice, I told your mom that he was in my dream the other night. He was older (which were always the dreams I had of my kids when I was pregnant) and he had a huge cowlick in the front! That is too funny that you think it may be a cowlick! My dreams were always quiet accurate. :) I absolutely love him!! He is one lucky little guy to have such awesome parents. I am so proud of you. You will all forever be in my thoughts and prayers.

P.S. I just LOVE the Zaky!! Where has it been the last 7 years!!

Thank you so much for all your daily updates on your precious son ....I agree with Amy, he is a very handsome little man. I check your site several times a day and want you to know that all three of you are always in my prayers and thoughts.

Candice and Cody,
Just wanted you both to know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers daily and I am so glad to see litte Rhys' beautiful eyes. I was listening to KSBJ today and eventhough they didn't say your last name, I know in my heart it was your little man they were sending prayers out for. God bless you both. Love Kim Elswick
