FIRST MENTION OF GOING HOME!

Everyday Witt looks better and better...glory! Not only does he look better in specific ways but also just overall he looks like he feels great. Almost everyone who walks in says how good he looks! The nurse yesterday told Melanie what a good job she has been doing with him. Today the feed will be brought up to full volume. I don't believe there are any other real changes ordered. Witt is in the part of the process of tweaking his medicines. There was even talk today of sending him home...first time it has been mentioned! Mel did ask that before he leaves they at least start the process of switching him over to the age appropriate formula. Please pray that that all goes well over the next few days. We believe that trying to make that switch a few weeks ago is what eventually put Witt in the hospital. This will be a different formula than was tried the first time. The other one even in a very small amount gave him diarrhea which threw everything out of balance and started him on the road to being very dehydrated. Right now the doctors all agree he is doing quite well...ready to face the New Year!

From these pictures of Witt's hair it looked like the New Year's party already began but from the serious look on his face I don't think he was in the celebrating mood!
