Day 24

Here's a picture of me and Ms. Sue from church. Her and her son A.J. came by to see me today! I really liked her bright shirt. She brought me some really kewl Buffalo Sabres booties and she also brought a Sabres stick and ball for both Jonathan and Joshua! How nice! So while I was trying to sleep, Joshua and Jonathan were having a hockey battle royale up and down the hallway. Maybe the sticks weren't such good presents after all! :)
I went to the doctor today and he said that I gained a few ounces. I'm now officialy 3 pounds 15 ounces. Man! I was hoping to break the 4 pound mark... guess I'll have to wait till next week! I'm having a little trouble digesting all the food that Mommy and Daddy put into my belly... they pull some out of my belly before each feeding... so my doctor said not to increase my food but gave us a new formula to mix in with Mommy's milk. I think it's like steroids... for babies. He also wants to talk to all my other doctors about the other night when I didn't feel good. He thinks it has something to do with my broken heart and wants to see what we can do to make sure that doesn't happen again.
After the doctors office we went to Gramma and Grampa's house and then we went to a church where they were having a pancake supper just for me! It was really cool! When you first walked in there were all these pictures of me! And at every seat at every table there were placemats filled with my pictures! I knew I was famous, but wow! I'm so famous that people want to look at me when they eat! I usually just look at the ceiling when I eat. Mommy kept me strapped in close to her belly all night (the outside of her belly this time... not the inside!) All kinds of people came to support me and my family. It was wonderful! Thank you to all of you who came out in that terrible weather so you could support us. Mommy and Daddy were overwhelmed at the show of love and support from all of you!
After that Gramma and Grampa helped get me home and my brothers in bed. Then I played some tricks on Mommy and Daddy with my monitors just to keep them on their toes. Mommy looked really tired so I thought maybe I should stop and let her get some sleep. Off to bed.... thanks for checking in on me again... hope your day was special and that you showed someone that you loved them!

What will happen is God's business. Remaining faithful, no matter what happens, is ours.
This is so important. Have a blessed day with little Jacob

So glad to come here on Day 24 and see that you are doing so good. I hope the pancake supper was a really huge success. You are a STAR and I love the videos with you and your big brothers. I see you looking at them every time you hear their loving voices. You know them so well already. I will be praying for all the doctors to get together and agree on how best to take care of your heart. You are truly a beautiful little boy, your brothers too!

Love, Laurie in Ca.

Thank you for sharing with me. I have a son named Jacob. He is six years old and I'm sure would be noisey just like your brothers. I look forward to your updates each and every day and pray for you too.
God Bless

I have enjoyed checking your blog each day when I get to my computer. The videos of your big brother taking care of you brought tears to my eyes more than once! I think your Mommy and Daddy are doing a great job enjoying every moment with you - and showing great wisdom by allowing your brother lots of "hands on" time to enjoy you! I am praying for you and your family every day! TODAY is the day that the Lord has made -rejoice and be glad in it!!

Hi Sweet Little Jacob,
Your pancake supper sounds so GREAT! We are really sorry to have missed it but my dad and mom had a concert to go to. I got a new waffle maker for my birthday (you know not many 12 year olds want that for their birthday) so I was hoping to come over and bring my waffle maker and make us all waffles! What do you think?
I love you!
Love Alyssa
