awesome GOD!

"Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, O my soul and forget not all his benefits- who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's." Psalm 100:1-5

Thanks be to God for Coy's continued healing! Coy was extubated and placed on CPAP of 7 after fully waking up this morning. He has done GREAT so far...he was on 21% oxygen (room air) most of the day...this is better than before! I don't understand how after being intubated, going to surgery, being coded, re-intubated, and put under anesthesia he could come out better than before??? We just have to PRAISE GOD!! Please continue to pray for healing of Coy's lungs; that he will stay strong & mighty and breathe like the little champ he is...

They restarted his feedings at 12cc and will work back up to 25cc gradually...he really liked his milk today...he still takes his pacifier and wakes up when it's time to eat!

I prayed and prayed (with all of you) yesterday for him to wake up...today at his bedside, I was trying to get him to fall asleep!! Oh boy, did he ever wake up....thank you Jesus!

He was really ticked off that he still had an IV in his left arm (he swings his left arm round and round until I put my hand over it and calm him down...he does this everytime he has an IV in his left arm...) His IV will most likely come out tonight or maybe sometime tomorrow...that hopefully will make him a happier camper

thanks to all for the continued love and support! it means so much to us!!

Here is a picture of Coy before surgery on Tuesday (with his holter monitor on)...
Here is a picture of him resting comfortably tonight...he weighed in at 3lb3oz!

Thanks be to God. He (both God and Coy) is truly amazing! I had to laugh though at the picture of him before surgery--one sock on and one sock off just like a "normal" healthy baby! What strength he has to kick socks off, pull out his tubes, move his arms, etc. I so can't wait to see you at Kinsmen one day and meet you.

Your son is just beautiful. I just love the first photo of you kangarooing him!

I'm so glad that the ROP treatment went well, and that he's been moved to CPAP so quickly. Your family will remain in my prayers.
