Day 3 - Update 9pm

We saw our baby boy this morning but have spent the rest of the day in Waco with big brother Oliver and family.  We will visit him again late tonight.  Fortunately, we can come to the NICU at any time of the day or night.  This is reassuring as I have many times woken in the night and wondered how he is doing.

The biggest difference between last night and this morning was how skinny he is!  I couldn't hardly believe he could look so much smaller in just 12 hours!  I was alittle worried that weight loss would indicate he was not doing well.  But, apparently, it's a great indication he's doing better.  Apparently, he is losing weight because the swelling is going down.

This picture is of the band around Bennett's little left leg.  Last night it fit perfectly. 

Today, it was way too large.

The more the swelling goes down, the more likely his lungs and organs will begin working better.  Bennett was given a blood transfusion again today.


  1. we'll keep taking all the great news we can get!!!
    excited about Bennett's future!
