Home and Happy

Davis came home yesterday evening and seems to be on the upswing. His fever is gone, his fontanelle is back to normal, and he can tolerate some formula. He's lost weight and still isn't eating nearly enough, but we feel like he's on the mend and going to be a-okay. He's back to his smiley-little self... after these last few days, it's nice to see.

Visiting the healing hotel

Just a quick update... it's about 1 am on Tuesday night, and we're in the hospital. Davis wasn't feeling well today - vomiting, no appetite, coughing, fever - so we took him to the doctor around 4ish. We called our pediatrician later because he couldn't eat at all, and because his fontanelle (the soft spot on his head) was swollen and hard. He's on tamiflu and tylenol. We think this is just a precaution and will be nothing, but given his history we don't want to take any chances. Will update as soon as we know something...

Busy Weekend!

4 Miracle Babies and 1 Amazing Couple

This has been one busy weekend! We drove to Raleigh for the Parker Reese Foundation reunion. We are so glad we went. It was amazing to see all the little miracle babies hanging out together, and even better to see the look on Jes' face when they were all in her lap. Parker's legacy is so evident in the lives of Davis, Bodee, Katie, Carter, and so many others.

Then, we made a stop by the Duke ICN to say a quick hello to Davis' nurses. We missed the Duke reunion so we knew we were in big trouble unless we brought Davis by for a visit. He got to say hi to Carolyn, Shanda, Lindsay, Heather, April, and a few others... we didn't get to see everybody, but we'll be back soon.

Lastly, we stopped by to stay the night with the Trefneys. Little Elizabeth and Katie (his cousins) were so excited to see him. They were so sweet, holding Davis and petting his head.

Now we are home sweet home and miss everyone already... but are so exhausted, we will surely sleep well tonight (as long as Davis does, that is)...

We Love Daddy

Happy first Father's day, Michael. You have been an amazing father since the day I told you we were going to be parents. You are the heart and soul of our family and we love you so much!
