Good Day




Ethan has had another good day. The drainage has slowed down a lot, and his chest x-rays are showing no fluid build up. . . We just pray it continues in this direction. The nurses today said they felt he has finally "turned the corner". We will see. I am very grateful for this progress. Now I am trying to focus on nutrition. With less fat being drained out of his chest I am hoping to start seeing some weight gain. He is such a peanut.


Thanks for the great visits this week ladies. . . Much appreciated!

It is always wonderful to hear those words from their lips, "Tunring a corner" Those three little words mean so much. I am glad he is making progess, every little bit is a step in the right direction. We are praying...

Give sweet Ethan more kisses from us...he is so adorable in that picture, his look on his face is as if he was saying, "Enough pictures, I just want my snuggle time with you mom."

Sending you our heart hugs
Jenna and Lily

AMAZING!! Ethan is one of the cutest little boys I have ever seen! I am so happy that he is turning a corner and there is light at the end of the tunnel!

We'll continue to pray.
