Well today was my last appointment with the most amazing set of doctors I could ask for to help me with my little guy. Today's appointment went kinda like I thought it would, nothing too exciting (well besides I got to see my little guy) , He now weighs 5 lbs 14 oz, he has gained 14 oz... I figure he will weigh about 6lbs 5oz when he is born, not to bad considering he is going to be 3 weeks early. We got some good pics of his face again I believe he is ready to show the world how cute he is :) Other then that they just went over what to expect on the BIG DAY.
I try to tell myself I am ready for all of this to happen so we can start the road to recovery and bring him home, but there is just so much unknown on how things will play out when he gets here it makes it hard to be "ready" or even "excited". I was told today that it will be a couple of hours after I have him before I can see him before they take me by ambulance to the other hospital. I always dreamed of the day I would have him and get to cuddle with him but instead I have to see him and leave him, I don't know how I am gonna do it just thinking about it kills me. I know it is for the best and he will have family by his side but it don't make it any easier to accept it .
So far the amazing response to my prayer request has helped Parker stay put until they come to get him :)
Lets continue to pray that
* He stays in there for 1 more week
* He has the strength to avoid ECMO
* He beats the odds and is able to come home to his mommy and daddy <3
Thank you again , I can not say it enough to everyone that is praying so hard for my little guy, For those that are apart of "Prayers for Parker" I will be keeping you all updated through this site until he is home safe and sound with us. Yes I will post pics of his cute little face too :)
