My Little Fighter: Aug 7, 2012

August 8, 2012

Not much to report today, hooray! We both got to snuggle with Oliver, which was magical. He is an excellent cuddler. He’s continuing to tolerate his food well, and is still on full TPN, so he’s getting bonus calories to help him grow big and strong. He’s getting pretty close to being off the fentanyl which will be nice. Still rockin the CPAP. His chyle may be slowing down, which would be incredible but I’m afraid to get my hopes up so I’ll wait a few more days before making any official declarations. All good news over here πŸ™‚

My parents neighbors KJ & Kiki made these amazing cookie packages for all the staff today, and everyone was raving about them. Dr Marco saw the biscotti and said, in his adorable Italian accent, “it’s like I’m at home!” Isn’t it wonderful that that’s the big news for today?

Praying SO hard that Oliver continues on this path. Lots of people came by today to remark on how far he’s come and how incredible the fight in him is. I guess when you see these guys a lot, you don’t necessarily expect kids as sick as Oliver was to even make it to this point. Way to surprise everyone, Ollie! I’m not sure I really understood how close to not making it he has been. Sure, I got scared, but based on today’s conversations I maybe wasn’t scared enough. Which I’m fine with. It’s certainly not over yet, but I’m happy Oliver’s proven that he can’t be counted out. Xo
