Sick Boy

We still haven't made any progress on his infections. The doctors have ordered all types of MRI's and Ultrasounds to try and figure this out, but they just don't have any answers right now. It seems like with every test we learn more about this puzzle of a boy. Today we learned that he may not have a gall bladder which is really no big deal, but it just adds to the questions. The good news is that he has been tolerating his feeds really well, and he is up to 5 pounds 1 ounce. He also had a period of time today where he had both eyes open, and looked at us. Tomorrow we have an appointment with a physical therapist to show us some exercises to do with Carter to help him develop his motor skills. We're hopeful for a very good day.

Hello. I don't know if you remember meeting me, or not. Jennie Travis (Derek's wife). Anyway, I used to work at Primary's in the PICU. You are in good hands. Take it one day at a time. You guys are doing an amazing job. We've been thinking of you as well. Take care of yourselves.

Many prayers for Carter & your family. I hope you are recovering from delivery too. Hugs for you and your little man!
