As most of you know, Grady is home. It has been a wonderful, busy time. Grady got home on the 22nd of December, just in time for Christmas. Needless to say, it was the best Christmas present this family has ever had. Now that we are settling in and getting a routine started, the days are just vanishing. Grady has a meet and greet doctors visit today. Our little man is doing wonderful and it will be encouraging to see what his doctor thinks of his progress.
Having an immune weak child in the house, will bring its challenges. We are not taking Grady out right now. Visitors are few and far between. We hope you understand if you have not been invited over just yet. The doctors have warned the kids to keep Grady away from groups of people and to avoid having other children in the house until we see just how well he does. The reminders of pre-term statistics keeps us holding firm on visitors. Just know that we would love to have every one of you over here and plan to do just that. It will just have to be one or two at a time. Very soon, we will invite the kids over to see him. For now, we want to ensure that Grady is not one of the children that returns to the hospital within the first month of being home. His survival is our priority, but know that we can not wait until we can share him with his extended family members.
Grady has a new formula that seems to be working great for him. He is taking 130 ml by bottle and seems to be loving it. Sleeping all night is a blessing. Every now and then, we are getting up to clear his airway, but no sleep filled bottles. But be warned, once this little man is awake, he wants his groceries. Although, he does enjoy laying on his changing table and checking out his room. Grady will lay on that pad kicking his legs and looking around. You get to see his adorable smile while he his doing his leg lifts and kicks. Maybe it is the height of the table, who knows. This boy is loving his home.
Well, looks like there is a little noise coming from the napping boy. Better get off of here and go see what is needed. Again, thank you for all of your prayers and support. Knowing you are there gives my family comfort. Grady is a blessed little boy and so are we.
