This week has been hard with my cousin Christian being in the hospital. However, today has been a GREAT DAY! He got moved from ICU into a shared room yesterday, and will be moving into a single room tonight. The tube got taken out of his nose that was suctioning anything that got in his stomach out, today. He got started on liquid foods, and even can have jello and broth. And his IV got taken out too. His sister, Erika called me this evening and sounded SO much better! She said it was a great day.
Thank you again for all your prayers! It is so appreciated by all of us. It has been mentioned that my Gramma might go out there to take care of Christian for a while since he won't be able to do much on his own. Oh, and he has 30 staples in his chest from the surgery. They are saying what happened was he might have gotten food poisoning and threw up so hard and so long that he started to bleed where the esophagus meets the stomach. Usually it happens in the stomach, but this time in happened around his stomach in his abdomen.
Praise the Lord for His healing touch on Christian's life and body. We love him so much and are so happy to have him be are family.
On another note. We made a new baby friend at the ACH new mom's group in the last couple of months. He has been having a hard time with gaining weight (he and Gabe are 5 days apart). He hasn't ever lost weight, but it has been a slow process. 2 weeks ago, he only gained 2 ounces, in 1 week. Gabe only gained 3 ounces that week, so maybe it had to do with being almost 3 months young. BUT, this last week, he gained 11 ounces! PRAISE GOD! We were so happy!
I think that is it for now. Gotta go give Carson some attention.
ALOHA! Happy 4th tomorrow!
