JUST A SWINGING

Witt has now been home for a little over 2 weeks! It actually seems a lot longer than that. He is doing well on his feeds. Before each feed, Melanie has to draw back through his feeding tube from his stomach and see how much residual is left from the feed before(and put it back in!). That amount is getting smaller and smaller. The first change that Melanie would like to make is to shorten the time over which Witt is fed. Currently he is fed over a 2 1/2 hour period 4 times a day. She would like to shorten that time a bit. Witt continues on lock down...he can't really have any visitors because of the threat of any flu or respiratory virus. Melanie is able to get out some but most her days are spent at home with Witt. She did take him to physical therapy on Friday. It was a fun outing and great to have Witt back in therapy. Thank you once again for your prayers. I know I have said this before but your prayers do make a difference. I feel and see the impact in so many ways....in my life, in Melanie's and Austan's and most definitely in Witt's! Thank you that you take the time for us!
He's getting more picky on when he'll take the pacifier!

Witt loves his swings...outside or indoors!

It's been a while since I've commented, but Witt and the family continue to be in my prayers.

I'm an artist and I have something I made that I would like to send Witt, Melanie & Austan for Christmas. Could you send me there address? I know this might sound weird, seeing as we have never met, but I would love to send them this little gift so that they will know that Witt's story is far-reaching and people like me, far away in California, are praying.

Here is my e-mail, you can send the address there: erindrez@yahoo.com

Thanks!

Ha! He is going to need a haircut soon, isn't he? Mom and I are heading to Houston tomorrow. And we are so glad we don't have to come to the hospital to visit! haha Well, you know what I mean. God continues to bless. ~Mindy

It's so wonderful to see him at home and without anything hiding his beautiful face!
We're worrying about the same things with Bella and RSV. I'm looking for a rainguard like Mel uses on Witt's stroller. That is the best idea and she is so clever to think of it.
