March 28th & 29th

Lisa got to hold Ryan with skin-to-skin contact on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday went well and she got to hold him over an hour. Sunday, Ryan was a little fussy so she only got to hold him about 20 minutes, but it was wonderful. It will take some time for both of them to get used to the holding, but Lisa is going to try it every day.

Ryan is doing well physically. His respiratory episodes are fewer and he's off CPAPS. He's still only around 2 lbs., but is tolerating the nutrition and breast milk well and should start growing.

It's amazing at how tiny Ryan is, but he's a fighter. The nurses say he can't seem to keep still and he's always kicking himself out of his diaper or pulling on one of his cords. It's possible that he may be moved up to a less intense NICU ward in the next week or so. His size is the big factor right now.

We are so blessed to have Ryan in our lives. Please continue to pray for him!

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers, Lisa, Joey and Alec
