FIRST OUTING TOMORROW!

Witt is adjusting well to his new home. Melanie and Austan are getting closer to having all their things moved in. Witt is getting on a good schedule now that he is out of the hospital. For the most part he is sleeping through the night. Melanie and Austan do have to start a midnight feed and a 6am feed but Witt just sleeps through it. Tomorrow will be Witt's first outing since having the ventilator. He has is first appointment with his new pediatrician. Dr. Lewis will be his pediatrician. She is at Texas Children's and specializes in kids with special needs. Actually, tomorrow Witt will be seen by one of her associates because she is out of town but from now on it will be Dr. Lewis. Please pray that this first time out for Mel and Austan with Witt is not hard as they have to deal with Witt's equipment. I don't worry about Witt's disposition...Mel said he is almost always smiling. First thing in the morning when she goes to his bed, he smiles and throughout the day! I think of Witt and what God has accomplished in his life and I smile! It would have been almost impossible for the 3 of them with Witt's equipment to have lived in the house they way it was before the hurricane. I think of Almighty God and what He accomplished with their house and I smile!!!!

Mr. Smiley!!!


Melanie and Austan have a video monitor.
Here's Witt asleep at night!

In this picture Witt's hair is kind of tame....

...but it looks alive here!
