Progress Update: September 15



Truman is now 2 lbs, 1 ounces and up to 8CCs per feeding, which is 2 ounces per day. He's continuing to get bigger every day!

Some of you have asked based on these pictures if he's back on the ventilator. Nope, he's still doing well on C-PAP. The white strap is holding the C-PAP prongs in his nose. It just looks awfully big on such a little face.

My son spent the first month of his life in Childrens Hospital after having open heart surgery at 2 weeks. Some of the things you talk about sound all too familiar. Truman is a handsome boy and looks great!

Whey to go Truman!! You have a friend out here who is looking up to you for inspiration. My little 1lb 7ounce Blake was born 2 weeks ago at 24 weeks exactly. We have been following Trumans progress and you are all an inspriation.

I just wanted to let you know that a good friend of mine had her baby boy at exactly 23 weeks last September. He stayed in the hospital for 6 months, but is now doing wonderfully! Blessings on little Truman!
