Teeny Tiny Truman

This page is all about Truman, born Aug. 8, 2006 to Kara and Ben.

Update: Thursday, Oct. 12

CURRENT WEIGHT: 2 LBS, 11 OUNCES

Truman gained a full ounce yesterday -- exactly the kind of progress Mom and Dad like to hear.

He was weaned back to 5 back-up breaths on the C-PAP today. I think he's trying to convince the doctors to take him back to nasal canula sooner. Last night when we got to the hospital, he had one prong completely out and sticking up near his eye and the other almost out. He's a very crafty little boy! Maybe reading him adventure stories isn't the best motivation right now. Currently, Mom is reading "The Hobbit" to him, and Dad is reading him "Prince Caspian" from the Chronicles of Narnia series.

He had another brain sonogram yesterday, but we haven't heard results yet.

Fiesty is good!!! Sarah never kept the prongs in. I remember the nurses threatening to superglue the CPAP, canula and feeding tube to her face! We actually have one of the superglue threats on video!!!

Make sure you take lots of pictures and videos of your fiesty one! 1 oz! Keep up the hard work Truman!

Truman, I am so excited to hear how well you are doing! Keep up the excellent weight gain! I see you are keeping your nurses and parents on their toes with the nasal prongs! Way to show 'em what a fighter you are! It won't be long until you are at home with mommy and daddy and they will be wondering where all their help (nurses) went to when you exhibit that fiestiness at home!
