Hello everyone,

We've got a couple of days to catch up on and lots has happened.

Ryan weighed 5 lbs. 1. oz. last night!!! He actually went over the 5 lb. mark on Wednesday night.

We spoke to the doctor today and she said that we need to be prepared for Ryan to be home by next weekend!!!!!
We were totally in shock because we thought it would be at least 2 weeks or more.

They are starting Ryan on 8 bottle feeds per day tomorrow, Sunday. He must do that well before he goes home, however, they are hopeful he will.

He hasn't had a bradycardia attack since the 11th, so they are going to try to wean him off the oxygen in the next week. If he can't be, they will send him home on it. He will also probably come home on a monitor.

We are so excited about getting so close to Ryan coming home!!! We are ready to have our little guy at home where he belongs. This week will be a very busy week getting things ready for him.

We don't have the nursery ready yet, but Ryan will be staying with us in our room for a while (especially if he's on oxygen and a monitor) so we have time.

We want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. They have helped Ryan get this far. Please keep them coming.

We'll keep you updated.

Lisa, Joey, Alec & Ryan
