Mason has pink cheeks!

I got here this morning and they had extubated (got the breathing tube out) him. Yay! He seems happier than yesterday, but still uncomfortable. Thank goodness for pain medicine, it helps calm him down. His coloring is much better today. He even has pink cheeks! The next hurdle will be this afternoon when he can start to get food. He still has chest tubes in so I won't be able to nurse him. Hopefully he is hungry enough to take a bottle of my pumped milk while laying in the crib. He has become so picky. If he won't the dr. said he may have to get an NG tube back in for a few days. I hope not though, he does not like those NG's. Also, he did weigh in at 11 lb's 2 oz. yesterday before surgery! Good job Mason. Thanks for all the comments and thoughts of love and support. Love Summer

Hey,
Stopped by last night...late. Sorry I missed you but I did get to see Mason. He was sleeping well and looked very peaceful and content. I am so happy that things are going well for you.

We are so glad to hear that things are going so well. That is so great that the tube is out. We are praying for little Mason. It is so cute to hear my kids pray for him on their own when they say prayers. We love your cute family!
