Lukas is 6 lbs!!!!

Our little guy is getting so big. Yesterday he weighed in at 6 lbs and today gained 2 more ounces! We couldn't be more thrilled with his steady weight gain and the prospect of him coming home by Monday, May 18! We spoke with our doc yesterday and requested that the gavage tube be removed and asked if he could, in turn, be bottle fed for every meal. So far, he's done fabulously with the change and is eating like a champ and nursing for me twice a day.

If this continues, we'll all be at home very soon! Please pray for continued success with taking a bottle every time and continued weight gain while in the hospital.

Weighing in at 6 lbs, 2 oz. Yeah!
4 days worth of milk- also weighing in at 6 lbs! HA HA! This really is very crazy, to be making 6 oz. at every feeding/pumping. All I can say is that Lukas better get VERY hungry VERY soon! Actually, this will store nicely in the deep freeze and be backup milk for us. I'd also like to donate some of it for other NICU babies who aren't able to get
milk from their mommas.

Hi Becca! I have thought of you over the last couple of years and wondered how Simon is doing and now I see you have a second son! I'm so happy for all of you! How early was he? I'm just shaking for you at the thought of bringing him home tomorrow!
Prayers & Blessings!

Hey there Jen!

So good to hear from you! Thanks for checking our blog AND for commenting! I've also thought of you guys a lot- wondering how your little lady is doing! She's 2 by now, huh! Time flies by so quickly!

Anyway- Lukas was born at 33 weeks- again, no one knows why I delivered early! God has been good though, and my guys are healthy and happy. (Except for Simon who is a typical 2 year old with drama). HA HA!

Anyway- would love to chat more. Feel free to e-mail me at pebeshank@gmail.com I'd love to hear more about you and Dixon and how you're all doing!
Much love, Becca
