Ethan sleeping with puppy "Martin"
Today was a great day!! You got to hear the "morning report" from Auntie and now my small update. Ethan is beautiful. Today I got to see him more than any other day of his little life! His billirubin is down and platelets are up. We praise God for everything he is doing in little Ethan's life. He is also now eating bottles with mostly breast milk and is keeping it all down. This makes the pediatricians happy and now the only thing standing between him and home are his little platelets.
The nurse I spoke to tonight made me hug her because she said last night he woke up, and he didn't cry but he just laid there and looked around. She said she couldn't help but pick him up, unplug him from the monitors, and walk him all around the unit with her on her nightly errands. I told her by all means, pick him up and hold him because as soon as he gets home that is what I will be doing!!
Philip and I got to give him his first bath tonight and that was fun too!!
Thank you ALL for your support and encouragement. I know that your prayers have been heard by an almighty God who has big plans for this family. Philip and I have had a peace about us that is unexplainable except but through Him.
