Slowly, But Surely

Today, Drew is doing better! The doctor told me his pneumothorax has resolved, the only remaining issue is the small amount of fluid in his lungs and his needing to feed. We attempted feeding today, but he was pretty worn out and just slept. He is getting a break and I will go back tonight to attempt another feed, then we will let them tube feed him all night and let him rest, and I will try again tomorrow. There is a possibility that he might go home Sunday if all goes well!

Meanwhile, the other kids are currently building book towers in the living room and sitting on them. Marty is having a hard time resisting the temptation to knock the towers down while the kids are on them. Some things never change...

We're keeping up with your blog while down here in Mesa, and praying for you and for Andrew, and especially for Marty.
