Witt is doing great! The doctors are very pleased with where he is and how he is doing. Witt hasn't needed any intervention like more diuretic for several days! Today Witt is going back on nutramagen because for the last couple of days on the most broken down formula Witt was throwing up. Witt will remain on this formula for several days then most likely go back to breast milk for a few days to see if there are changes that indicate a milk allergy. The doctors also said that Witt will probably move out of the step down room and into a regular room the first of next week! What this means is Witt will only be on a pulse/oxygen monitor like at home. Melanie actually will be able take Witt for walks on the floor without a nurse having to go with them. This is a major step closer to going home!!! The decision will be made Monday after a chest x-ray and labs. Melanie and Austan meet with a member the transplant team today at 2:00. They will most likely will have a lot of questions answered and will have even more questions to ask. Please pray for God's guidance for Melanie and Austan...with Witt most the questions have complex answers with complex decisions. Over the next days Melanie and Austan will be gathering a lot of information from man and they need God to direct each decision! They desire God's plan for Witt's life!

Witt is definitely the cutest dresser on 15!

Bottle time!

Witt love his daddy!

Witt and Austan!!

Goodness, he looks so much like his Daddy! So glad to hear that he's doing so much better! I'm going to just thank God that He is healing Witt, and believe that He WILL accomplish it...that Witt is getting better and better everyday. Phillipians 1:6 "...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion..."
Hugs and Blessings,

I will be thinking of you all during the meeting time today and I also pray that the answers come! GREAT pictures of Witt. He just keeps developing such a personality. The strength of this family continues to make me absolutely speechless.
