Can’t believe it, but our son is 24 days old already, and, according to the Doctor, he’s looking the best he’s looked yet! We had a very uneventful weekend (PTL), other than the amazing opportunity to hold Beckett once again on both Saturday and Sunday (please see the pics I posted…it was so great!). The plan for the week is to slowly wean off different medications, but the big goal is to possibly have Beckett extubated by the end of this week (aka: pull the tube out of his mouth that’s helping him breath). These ‘weanings’ may be challenging to observe, but a much more welcomed challenge than situations where his life is in the balance.
The support has been astounding, you all have been so great! We’ve had multiple family and friends visit us here at the hospital, some financial support, and even our small town of Upland is tying Blue Ribbons out in front of their homes in support of Beckett and his precious life! We are so humbled and blessed to have the family, friends and networks during this time of need…and are so very thankful!
Lastly (and I know many of you don’t necessarily share the same ‘religious’ beliefs I have…but), it has truly been undeniable that there has been a higher power at work in my son’s life. The Doctors and Nurses have even mentioned that they can’t necessarily share everything with us quite yet, but Beckett has truly been a miracle baby and has touched many lives even here in the hospital. I say, ‘To God be the Glory!’
