Day 114!

What a turn around. The last two days have been really hard on this little 6 pound body of mine. But I am tough and God has granted me strength, and those who care for me, wisdom and love.....I seem to have made it through a tough time with all this support. THANK YOU for all those prayers!.....keep it up! My peeer works regularly now...pooper still needs some work but it may take a bit to readjust to breastmilk. Apnea spells have been less frequent.....still happening but a little less intense. So, I just have to tolerate my feeds and poop and we'll be good.

As I had said before, Gramma showed up early this morning with some donuts and helped out a bit. Miss Ann Marie came out and examined me and was impressed with my progress. She will be checking in on me all week....she just can't stay away.

So then, Queen Comfy (Busia) stopped by with lunch groceries and spent a lot of time with me......she was so patient with me......I just did not feel well and my insides were uncomfortable and although I was on Queen Comfy and sleepy, I just could not relax. She rocked me and patted me and sung to me and just loved me with everything she had.....I took it all in but my body just wouldn't let me relax. But then, at about 5:00pm God answered our prayers and I rested so well....it was like someone flipped the switch. I have been comfortable and able to rest since. I am still weak but I managed to even have calm awake time with my zebra print. Joshua and I played "I Spy" under my new black and white play set....I'm a pretty good spier when it comes to black and white. Aunt Nancy and Uncle Kevin came over to visit for the rest of the evening. It was nice. Aunt Nancy just thinks I'm so cute....who can blame her?!?! I enjoyed it....which feels great after these last two days. I am comfortable.....thank God!....He is so good!

No news on Noah.....he was supposed to have tests today but you know how test scheduling at the hospitals can go....you never get in when they tell you......so just keep him and his family in your prayers.

Well, considering all that has happened, I need to get my rest....Mom is waiting for me here so I should go. Talk to you tomorrow, Lord willing. Sweet Dreams....don't let the bed bugs bite!

Glad you are doing better, Jacob. Your brothers are hilarious when they rush through "Happy Birthday" to see who can blow out the candles first! They should be firefighters. I'm praying that you continue to feel better. Snuggle in well with Mommy tonight.

I prayed for you and your family today, Jacob. Except that I called you "Joseph". But Jesus knew who I was talking about, so that's OK. I won't forget next time, I promise.

I am glad to hear you are feeling better and were able get some of that fluid out of your body. I'm ALWAYS thinking and praying for you even in a silent moment at work. You are a fighter and a precious boy. Keep on fighting little Jacob. I pray too that you would be comfortable and not have any pain especially in your tummy. I know when my tummy hurts I'm miserable and not fun to be around. Keep your chin up buddy.

God Bless,

I have been praying for you every day sweet boy and am glad to hear that you are doing better. I get scared when you aren't your usual perky self here. You are such a little warrior.
I will keep praying for you Jacob and for your mommy and family too. We all love you so much.

I watched the video. I loved them. Then one "I wish I could Peee!" made me cry.
