So strong!


"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will hold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

Praise God and all his glory for he is good! Coy is still CPAPin' right along...His oxygen requirement has been steady (40-60%) and he has been desating alot less!! He does desat while eating at times; we're still working on the eating AND breathing thing all at one time...
Coy's feedings were increased to 20cc every 3 hours...he continues to tolerate & digest all his milk! This is an awesome feat; digestion can be a HUGE problem for some preemies...
He has lost some weight over the past few days due to him working harder on his breathing...he did gain 20 grams tonight, so he is now 2 lb 6 oz...
Please continue to pray for Coy; for him to sustain the strength to stay on CPAP; that his oxygen requirement is lowered; that he continues to tolerate all his feeds; that he continues to urinate adequately; that he stays free on infection; that he gains weight slowly but surely...

That picture is adorable! He has grown so much. You can really see it in the pictures. We will keep praying for continued forward progress and no setbacks! God is definitely protecting your little guy. There are so many people praying for him. It is amazing how many lives you all have touched! Stay strong.
Love,
Reyne

Way to go Coy! Keep up the hard work...it's paying off. And you look adorable in that picture with nothing on your face. That CPAP is big and obnoxious but it's helping you grow up and strong.

Take care: Tracey & Jaymin

Ann Marie and Chris,

What a precious little guy! I love the picture without any junk on his face! I just want to give him a hug! Whenever Jaxson pulled out his feeding tube (yea, that little stinker) in the NICU I used that as an opportunity to get some cute pics as a "regular baby". :) I am sooooo happy Coy is doing well on CPAP and continues to grow! Pretty soon he'll be in big boy clothes! We continue to pray for you guys every day and we are so happy to hear all of the good news.

Take care,

Ann, Shawn, and Jaxson
