just thought i would update everyone...as some of you know *I had my son at 26 wks, he was born 8/16/10 b/c my water had broke, and i had an infection that my body wasnt fighting off and my baby wasnt handling things very well.  I went in for a c-section which i had planned for but not that soon.  When i woke up my baby was in the lil bed next to me getting ready to be transported to childrens hopsital, he weighed 2lbs 6oz and 13 inches long...he was so tiny:) I got to hold his hand before they took him away, i didnt get to c him til 2 days later and that 1st day a saw him i got to hold him.  Over the past months we have had many ups and downs....1st he developed a tummy infection and was having a hard time breathing so they put him back on the vent for 3 wks....then he got better, and started growing like a weed. but then he had to have a double hernia repair and well surgery went good but then they started to feed him and he didnt handle that well and stopped breathing and all that scarey stuff but the next morning they had to put him back on the vent for another wk....this was a very emotional ride, then about a wk ago i think it was he had to have an infection opened from the surgery, well they gave my lil man morphine and his body didnt like that and he had to be put back on oxygen, for a few days....uggghhh i didnt think it was ever going to end....thru this time i had many friends that kept praying for little Isaac and then this past weds the dr told me if he took all feeds by mouth for 48 hrs he could go home...and guess what i got to take my lil man home on Saturday!!!!! He now weighs 7lbs 9oz and is 21 inches long!!! I will post pictures later he should be waking up any min for food:) I am so blessed! I now have 5 kiddos at home, and I now know that most likely my family is complete....

my lil man is such a fighter now mommy isnt used to having a baby home, and waking up every 2-3 hrs to feed him but its all worth it when he looks up at me and smiles:) i know that this nicu stay has made me stronger...i have seen other families struggles ande made some really good friends thru this all:)
