Ryan's trip to New Orleans to the Pulmonologist was a good one! He has taken Ryan off of his diuretics as the first stage of weaning him off oxygen and the monitor. If Ryan does well in the next two weeks, meaning he doesn't have bradycardia or apnea episodes because he's off the meds, then the doctor will take Ryan off oxygen and the monitor except at night time. We have an appointment in 2 weeks and will keep you updated.

Keep your fingers crossed and those prayers coming!

Have a great day.

WOW! Ryan weighed 7 lbs. 3 oz. today at the pediatrician's! Dr. Wood was so happy because Ryan had gained a whole pound in two weeks. He said everything else with Ryan looked good and he was pleased with his progress.

The only drawback is that he still wants us to keep Ryan homebound at least for another month. Mostly because his due date was just a week and a half ago and it would be bad for Ryan to catch something at this point. Well, I guess that just gives me more time to spend cuddling and loving on Ryan.

We go to the Pulmonologist tomorrow and hopefully will have good news to share. Ryan also has a hip ultrasound this week. This is just to look for the potential of any problems which are common in preemies.

As always, thank you for your support, prayers and love!

Ryan weighed 6 lbs. 12.6 oz. on Friday. He's still growing so well!!!

Ryan has another appointment with his pediatrician this week as well as the pediatric pulmonologist. We hope there will be good news regarding his lungs and hopefully he can be weaned off his medications, oxygen and monitors. We will let you know what the doctor says.

I've posted a few more pictures for everyone, so enjoy!

Have a wonderful week!
