Two Pounds!

Truman has reached two pounds, and he finally has two sets of cheeks -- one on top and one on bottom! Otherwise, no real updates. He continues to do really well. His primary nurse said if he continues on this pace, we might have him home by Thanksgiving.

I have been praying for this little fighter for so long. I dont even know how I came across your blog, but it has truly touched me. I have sent this to many of my friends and they are praying for you as well.

I came across this on my moms message board and thought of you. Do you know of any way you can encourage this family. Their baby was born in MI at 23 weeks and the docs are refusing to treat her any longer. Here is their blog. http://23weeks.blogspot.com/ You can email me at rdysgirl@hotmail.com if you need further information.

Blessings, Joanna

P.S. I am a 2nd cousin of Emmie-Rose at University of Michigan hospital, who is another 23 week preemie. The doctors there (under the guise of something they call an ethics board...hah what a joke) are refusing to feed and treat her anymore...allowing her to starve to death. Her blog is at

someone posted a link to your blog on Emmie's comments, and I just HAD to come say Way to go Truman! You're doing great! Keep at it!
