On this wonderful Wednesday morning Witt is doing great! If you didn't hear, he had a great poop (we have come to appreciate everything.)
I am having to love him from afar because I still feel lousy but I am going to the doctor this afternoon. Melanie is not feeling 100% either and her doctor started her on cold medicine this morning. Prayers are appreciated that all of us can stay well too!
This morning I told Mel that I've always thought the story of her beginning was an incredible one. I was hit by a car while jogging then while I was being x-rayed head to toe they found out I was 2 weeks pregnant at the time. And although her story is still incredible Witt's story outshines them all!! Well actually...God outshines everything!
I just talked with Melanie and she is doing great. She said that Witt is going to be moved to Level 2 ICU soon.
He is going to get at least 22 cc of milk today at each feeding. For reference, 29.5 cc is 1 oz. She said they would steadily increase his food intake. The tube is going to be left in for now so that he will be able to take everything if he doesn’t take the entire bottle himself.
I know Mel and Austan really appreciate what everyone is doing as they take care of Witt. Thanks for your prayers and love as they minister and parent their almost two week old son.
How great is our God!
