quick update

Yesterday Coy had his eye exam with Dr. Hittner....she said he does not have ROP currently, but his vessels still have a ways to grow...she will come back once per week to examine him and check for ROP...overall, this is good for now, and she will keep a close "eye" on it...

Coy continues to mature and grow! He is acting like a real newborn, which even his nurses have noticed! He loves his pacifier....He is even gets fussy when he doesn't like the way his CPAP prongs are positioned or when he has a dirty diaper...

He received his 2 month immunizations yesterday...so far, he's reacted well to them...

Please continue to pray for the complete and total healing of Coy! He is so adorable and his strength is amazing. Pray for continued maturity of his eyes, pray for his oxygen requirement to be lowered daily (currently on 30-50%)....

Coy is really filling out. He is an adorable angel. Thank your for the incredible pictures. Even though I don't know you all I feel I do since I have logged on everyday since the beginning. I can't believe how far Coy has come. God is amazing. Your faith is inspirational, you remind me everyday who is in control and that you must have faith to make it through each day. Thank you Lord for no eye problems at this time and we will continue to pray for all of Coy's organs to be healthy and normal. I have a strong feeling very soon (March) we will here about your days at home with Coy.
Love,

I heard a song today and thought of Coy. The song is called Children of the Heavenly Father. It is from Plumb's "Blink" CD, which is full of songs written by a Christian mother for her son during her pregnancy. It is a beautiful song of God's protection for His little ones. The lyrics are below and I hope that they will bless and encourage you today.

Children of the Heavenly Father
Safely in His bosom gather
Nestling bird nor star in heaven
Such a refuge e'er was given

God His own doth tend and nourish
In His holy courts they flourish
From all evil things He spares them
In His mighty arms He bears them

Neither life nor death shall ever
From the Lord His children sever
Unto them His grace He showeth
And their sorrows all He knoweth

Though He giveth or He taketh
God His children ne'er forsaketh
His the loving purpose solely
To preserve them pure and holy

Lo their very hairs He numbers
And no daily care encumbers
Them that share His ev'ry blessing
And His help in woes distressing

Praise the Lord in joyful numbers
Your Protector never slumbers
At the will of your Defender
Ev'ry foe man must surrender.

Children of the Heavenly Father
Safely in His bosom gather
Nestling bird nor star in heaven
Such a refuge e'er was given

~Plumb
