Baby Andrew is home!

Thanks so much for your prayers! Baby Andrew was able to come home this past Saturday, December 14th. He had to pass a certain test to see if he can handle the stress and he did!

So far, he has some good reports that came back from the doctor. Here are the tests reports for the following:

Heart- Normal
Liver- Normal
Thyroid- Normal
Stress Hormone- Normal
Jaundice- isn't a concern right now so will keep an eye on him

He has two follow-up on Tuesday. One with his pediatrician and the other for GI or something.

Also, a good report on his brain being fully developed but the doctor still has a little concern and wants to make sure that his pitituary gland is working properly. So they want to follow up on that check on that just to be safe.

Also,  in the FUTURE - baby Andrew needs to take MRI test.

This is by far what I know of at the moment. God is good all the time! Through good and bad times.

Andrew seems to be doing good. Although, he's a little lazy in his feeding. We have to keep waking him up. He also spits up a lot. So I do a lot of diaper changing, washing clothes and waking up every 3 hours to feed him. I still use the pump, he is still being bottled fed.

As for me, I am doing better. I have been able to walk around and do some things after having a major surgery but I am slow.  Just being careful not to carry anything heavy. I'm told nothing more than 10 pounds. That's pretty limit. Joanna and Peter are about 30 something pounds and I can't even carry them like I want, you know?  I rather heal properly so that I can do all the things I used to do.  Matt does a very good job in helping me with everything.  I'm thankful for him.

Please keep those prayers coming... I know there's power in prayers.  Thanks so much!
