Nasal Cannula

Today was yet another bid day for Bryce (and me too). He was put on Nasal Cannula!!! This is a great step towards coming home.... He is on 3 liters and 35% O2, I know NOTHING about nasal cannula so I have no idea how high or low this is all I know is its a good step. Also we still have not had eye surgery. Dr. McCabe came in today and said Bryce's eyes are a little worse but still not bad enough for surgery. He will be back on Friday to check again.



Bryce is now 3lbs. 13 oz. and just the cutest thing! He nurses twice a day now, which is another good step towards home. He got 5 shots in the last three days (immunizations) so sad but he is so good about it, he only cries for a quick second and then he's fine. He's such a good boy. I am still trying to figure out what to do about when to go back to work or IF to go back to work and HOW to go back to work????? Any advice?? This is such a HUGE Dilemma for me right now, its making me crazy!

Oh another bit of good news, baby Jesse is now on VapoTherm and from what I have heard he is doing much better. VapoTherm is a REAL bog step for him, Congrats to Jesse and his family! And thanks to all who have prayed for him, like Bryce he too is a miracle baby and I totally believe that, prayer sis what has gotten Bryce and Jesse to where they are today! Thanks to everyone! Its been a while since I have updated some pics so here are some from the last few days, hope you all enjoy.

You must be one proud mama! He looks amazing and you can even see features that resemble yours and steves. I can't wait to meet the little pumkin. Keep posting, it's so nice to see how your family is doing. I think of all of you often!

Congratulations to you all. Bryce is adorable and thank goodness seems to be doing better each day.
He is one amazing little boy and you are one amazing woman - this has been so stressful on both you and your family and you all seem to be doing well. Keep your spirits high and as far as work is concerned, Erika, do what you have to do - no one will ever fault you for any decision you make. Things have a way of working themselves out. I love you and think of all of you often.

Hey there outstanding blog! Does running
a blog similar to this require a massive amount work?
I have very little knowledge of programming but I was hoping to start my own blog soon.
Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share.
I know this is off topic but I just had to ask. Thanks a lot!
