Baby Bennett Update

So excited to report that baby Bennett came off the ventilator yesterday Thursday, Feb. 19th, which meant his sweet mama Katye got to hold him for the first time!!!!!!!!!!!!! (He's been off the ECMO for about a week now) Bennett is 3 weeks old as of today. Praise God from whom all blessings flow! And just because a post doesn't seem like a post without at least one picture, here's a mini tablescape just because I can't wait for spring! When we found out we were pregnant with Grace, I was so excited to know I would be having a spring baby. Grace who was supposed to be a spring chicken was definitely an "early bird" in making her debut a month before time. I found this little bunny egg plate at Target last week and setting it up minus one egg makes me think of Bennett and his "early hatching". I'm so happy to see how much he is improving every day! Thank you for all your prayers!!

That is wonderful news! I can't even imagine not being able to hold your child for the first 3 weeks. Oh I am so happy for his Mama.

Still praying...

Oh how wonerful!! Baby Bennett must be happy to be in his mommas arms, if only for a few minutes! Praying he continues his speedy recovery!

Thank you both for praying! He is doing much better! Got another update today that he is needle free!!! They took out the line that was in his heart and now he just has the nasal oxygen and the external heart monitors, etc. He's working on learning to suck since he never had a chance to do that from the get-go and they're working on him taking milk from a bottle. His mama had a chance to participate in his first little bath!! Amazing to see God's fingerprints all over his miraculous turnaround!! Again, thanks for the continued prayers!
