Well, the little man is resting much better. He is calm and "pink" (meaning he's not pale like he was last night..the new blood has been good for him). His blood pressure has leveled out now that things have settled down. His echocardiogram came back good..YEAH! One of his blood cultures came back and was negative..not infection with that one. They are waiting on one more that will be back tomorrow so hopefully that one will be negative too. They are going to check his white blood cell counts again tomorrow and make sure those levels are still good. If all of that goes well, they will take him off of the antibiotics that they've had him on while they were waiting to hear back from these tests. He is still tolerating his feeds-- way to go, we want to keep that up. We felt good when we went in tonight. He was resting comfortably, but he did peek one eye open at us for a little bit. We pray that he will rest up and continue to strengthen his lungs and his whole body so that he can be ready when they take him off again. His nurese have worked really hard these last couple of days with him....he's been pretty demanding, but they've done a great job! Thanks for the prayers, keep em going!

Sounds like the roller coaster is on the way up! I know you rested better as well. I am praying that he rests well and "ripens" a little more every day.
Love you!

I've been thinking/praying about you every day and everyone I know at church and everywhere else is praying for you guys too. I know it is so hard to watch your child go through anything that you feel is hard or painful for him and I'm sorry you are having to learn that as the first lesson of parenthood instead of later down the road. I know you would like to have everything just continue to go smoothly, but trust your doctors and nurses. They know what they are talking about. Just remember, God gave Kanyon to you and Kory in particular because He knew you could handle his needs. God trusted Kanyon with the two of you for a very special reason-it was no accicdent. I can't wait for you to get to have your little guy at home and just hold and spoil him all you want! I know you can't either. And on a related note... I noticed you made this post in the wee hours of the morning. You have got to get some rest! :) Seriously, little Kanyon will be home before you know it and you will want to be the best Mommy to him you can be- so rest up now. You can enjoy sleepless nights later when you're rocking your precious gift at 1 am after he won't go back to sleep after his midnight feed!

Love ya and miss ya...Please let me know when there is anything you need...Emily R.

Jaymie and Kory,

Don't worry, all of this sounds very familiar. We went through all of this with Sarah-Beth just 4 years ago. Alot has progressed in that time, but I know how very scarey it can be. We were in the hospital for 3 1/2 months, and everyday was a different challenge. God is good and He knows what He is doing. If you just want to talk to someone who has gone through similar things just e-mail me at I would love to talk to you. God bless the doctors, nurses, family and friends who are with you and your family everyday.

Our prayers are with you always
