Andrew’s Progress

Sept. 13: Andrew was having some trouble breathing and has some fluid on his lungs.  So, they sent him to Childrens Hospital in DC today at 4pm.  He was actually doing a lot better when he left.  I am still at Calvert Hospital and I am doing OK, physically.  Not sure as of now when either of us are going home. Will update you when I know more.  Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

Sept. 15: Well, here is the update. As of now, andrew has been off oxygen for 24 hrs. And has been eating 1 oz. every 3 hrs. So things are looking great. If his blood test is negative then he should be released on saturday after 1pm. Thank you for all your prayers. I will be staying in the hospital until sunday late afternoon, early evening. Andrew will be brought to me from Childrens and stay with me in the hospital until I leave. I can't wait!!! I am attaching a picture, so don't forget to open it. More pictures will follow after I get home. And thanks again for praying for us.

Sept. 19: Hello All, Sorry I didn’t update sooner.  Andrew and I both went home on Saturday, 9-15.  Andrew is doing well.  He is eating good.  He now weighs 6lbs. 1oz.  he is sooo tiny...   Michael is also doing great with him. He loves his little brother.  Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.  I am attaching some pictures.  Enjoy.
