More Baby News . . .



Here's the latest news on Ethan. He was moved into the well baby nursery on Friday because so many babies were admitted to the NICU. He is technically still in the NICU because his breathing is being monitored. Today he will be given a breathing test while sitting in his car seat. He sometimes holds his breath, but then corrects it himself. Tonight he'll be monitored for sleep apnea. If the test shows a problem he will be on a sleep monitor at home. We're hoping he'll be going home on Monday.

Now for new pictures . . .


Here's Bobby feeding Ethan on Friday. He's eating very well. Mostly he's being fed from the bottle. However, Kari is doing a great job pumping as well as breast feeding.

I was so excited to get to hold him for a few minutes on Saturday night. He slept the whole time we were visiting.



So precious !


There was quite an audience at the window. Carol, Kari's Mom, her sister, Kim, Bobby, & my sister, Mary.
Bob has been sick with some kind of bug that's been going around so he hasn't been able to go to the hospital.
Thank you again for your concern & continued prayers for Ethan.
