This Weeks Update

As you can tell by the attached images Daniel T is growing and getting cuter everyday. He is now over 4 pounds and because he has been able to regulate his own body temperature, he is sleeping in a “Big Boy” bed instead of the incubator. The staff is working on getting his oxygen level down and helping him and his mom get to know each other better. Tracy has cut back on her work hours and is spending as much time with him that she can. The goal is wean him from his feeding tube and for him to learn to nurse just from his mom.

Thank you again for all your prayers on Daniel and his parents behalf.

How exciting. I love that he's doing so well. He's so cute! I hope he's weaned soon and gets to go home soon. Thanks for the updates.

That is GREAT news. We are thrilled for you. So glad that Tracy is getting to spend lots of time with him. We are praying that the transition goes well in the feeding department. :)

He's looking so big! (Relatively, of course). ;) That's awesome that Tracy gets to be with him so much!

We love his chubby cheeks and healthy glow. He's been in our prayers and they have been answered. What a little fighter! Clyde & Mary
