Hi Vanessa!
I wanted to give you an update on Christopher.

He is a wonderful baby! He is mostly good natured, he does get crabby when he is tired. He now lets me rock him and I pat his back until he falls asleep. He loves to sit in one of several chairs I have for him and watch tv. He babbles and coos. He loves my husband and shows him with a smile :)

His tummy is doing fine. You must have broke him in for me because he has yet to throw up on me. I still don't let him eat more than 3 or 4 ounces at a time though. He only wakes one time at night, usually between 1 and 3 am. He eats a little and goes back to sleep within an hour.

His MRI is scheduled for tomorrow. He can have formula up until 7 am and then water after that until 10. His MRI is scheduled for noon and then we see the surgeon next Tuesday.

Even though this is a major lifestyle adjustment for me, I love doing this. I am anxious for his upcoming surgery so that he can start on the road to recovery.

My community is wonderful, I have had tons of diapers and formula donated to me, as well as gas cards to help me with the many trips to the doctors.

I will send you another update in a couple of days.

Much peace,

Sue Gasieski
