little champ

"Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples. For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord." Psalm 117: 1-2

I'm happy to report that Coy had another GREAT day! He took 2 bottles today, (32cc) and it took him only 15 minutes each time to finish! The OT (occupational therapist) fed him this morning and I was able to do it this afternoon! It was awesome to see him finish his bottle so quickly! He had two big burps and then was wide awake! He was so proud of himself! The nurses and OT said Coy is doing "stellar" on his feedings. The OT said most babies finish only part of their feedings and it takes them 30 minutes; she is really impressed with Coy, she said it's very rare what he's doing!!! He's such an awesome little guy! Tomorrow we will try 3 maybe 4 feedings by bottle!! Praise the Lord and keep praying for Coy to eat like a little champ!

He did receive a suppository this morning then had a good poop. Please pray for him to regulate his bowel all by himself! He his oxygen requirement was in the 20s today; he remains on 2L; hopefully they will wean this soon!

He now weighs 3 lb 11 oz! He's getting chubby! And we love it!

Please continue to pray for complete healing of our little man. God is so good!

We were glad we had the chance to visit tonight and see the miracle for ourselves. Coy is beautiful! Chris and Ann Marie it was good to see you both. I once told Kathy, the Kolkhorst have a golden halo over their heads. Tonight I saw the halo shining over Coys little head. You two have a special bundle of love.
