Happy Father's Day

Mason had a good night. Although when I called at 6am, our nurse said he was awake most of the night. That's our Mason! The Dr. decided to keep him on tube feeds when he wouldn't take a bottle from the nurse last night. Which is okay, maybe he can put on some extra lb's since they are fortifying my milk and he is not burning calories to eat. Why not...he can't taste it through the feeding tube. He won't touch it if he tastes it! Today when I get there he can feed by mouth again. I know they also took out his RA and ART lines early this morning, which is great. That is another step forward. We will go spend the day with him in a little while and find out today's plan and goals for Miracle Mason.

I wanted to take a moment to say Happy Father's Day to Mark, my dad, my step dad, my father in law, and all the other Dad's out there! You all are a very important part of our lives. Mark spent his birthday in January up at the hospital with Mason and I, and now today we will spend Father's day up there. I guess just the luck of the draw, but I know he is so grateful for everyday he can spend with our little Mason. Also, he has so many times gone home to sleep with the kids when I have stayed with Mason, which has been so important to our kids. They have slumber parties in mom and dad's room. Thank you Mark for all you do.

I think Mason looks fantastic!! Sounds like he's healing up nicely and he'll be home before you know it!
