Life has been crazy around here since our sweet Mason made it into the world last Friday. Mason has been doing great, he isn't on any medications or machines. The only thing he is working on is finishing his bottles. As of the last feeding tonight...he has only 2 more bottle to fully finish to make it 24hrs of taking full bottles. He has to do 24 to 36 hrs straight of finished bottles to get released...so were close to going home.
This week has been the hardest & happiest week for us. Its been difficult on both Cory & I to have to leave Mason in the NICU to go home after I was released from the hospital. Add post pregnancy hormones...I was a mess. I feel like were in limbo now, between trying to spend time with Colby & trying to make it to as many feedings for Mason....momma is stressed. But we are trying to stay positive and focus on the fact that we will get through this difficult time. We also are just so very thankful that our Mason is here with us. I find my eyes welling up with tears every time I see him. Just the thought that we went from planing a memorial service to holding a miracle in our arms shows me how AWESOME our Lord is.
We pray that God calms our worried hearts and gives us peace in knowing we will get through this difficult time.
Also we praise God that Mason's heart is doing good and not showing signs of heart failure. Dr.s thought his heart would start failing within a few days after birth...well GOD is still showing us his blessings and Mason's heart is doing well (even surprising the Drs a bit). God is so good!
