April 27th

Baby Cohen is having another good day. Seems like some of our G tube issues are starting to resolve (knock on wood). Since we started bolus feeding during the night we have had less leakage. Cohen still doesn't sleep quite as much as we would like, but I know that will just come with time.

The Nurse from Nurses for Newborns came out today for our first visit. It went really well. She will come every week for a while, then switch to bi-weekly, then monthly visits. I was not sure what to expect from the visit. They weigh him, do a quick physical assessment and then ask us lots of questions. I was glad to have a second pair of eyes see the G tube and make sure we are doing everything right with it----she was really encouraging and made us feel good. I am really thankful to have this service. We can also call them anytime for questions or concerns about Cohen. I know we can always call our pediatrician, but its nice to have another contact just in case.

I wanted to say a special THANK YOU to all of our friends, neighbors, and church family that have brought us food since Cohen came home. We are getting so spoiled with all the wonderful meals! It has been so nice not to worry about cooking during this adjustment time. We are so thankful to have such thoughtful people in our lives.

Love and Blessings to you all!

  1. Christin,
    He is such a beautiful baby boy! I didn't even know you were pregnant, let alone all of this(I am so out of touch with the world, sometimes)! What a little fighter, you have on your hands!! Calee is VERY WISE to be so young, don't miss a moment of him being little! They grow up so VERY, VERY fast, but I am for certain that you are fully aware of that!!! You and your family will be in our prayers, God Bless! Jessica Welch
