UPDATE (3/13/13)

Yet another good day. Everyone was commenting today on how great Beckett looks. He was able to have a relaxing day yet again; a day filled with sleeping and playing. Then tonight he got a very thorough bath, new linens, and new pj’s. Once he was tucked in for the night he quietly drifted off to sleep within about a minute. He has been so peaceful and calm all day.

The only main events for the day were turning his Vapotherm down from four liters to three, weaning his Fentanyl drip from 2 to 1.5, increasing his Lovenox dose, and changing the multivitamin he gets because his billirubin has decreased enough. Nothing major, but all good things.

They are planning to do his upper GI early next week, and surgery for his g-tube mid to late next week. This truly is a huge step and we can’t wait for this to be done. They have also cancelled the HIDA scan for now.

Oh, and Beckett is almost back up to his full feedings. This is great, and he continues to grow bigger and stronger, becoming more active every day. Tonight he weighed a whopping 9 pounds 2 ounces. I honestly cannot believe how big he is getting, and I often forget that he is almost three months old. Where has the time gone?

This morning while my mother-in-law was praying after our devotional, she thanked God for spring and the coming of new life. How wonderful is it that soon we will be bringing Beckett home, in the springtime, with new life ahead of him. What a beautiful picture.

    I am so glad that Beckett has had a couple of good days. I know that is a relief for you and Jonny as well. I am still praying for the three of you. God has been so good and has used these last couple of months to touch many other lives. I am hoping God’s plan is that Beckett will be coming home very soon.
