Even though he was struggling slightly and working hard to breathe on his own, he still had lots of visitors that wanted to see him! He got a visit from his neighbors down the road Jimmy and Laura Ashby. Also his great grandma Sarah Terry and his great aunt and uncle Scott and Suzanne and his cousin Britney who brought hims some camo burp cloths! Tim and Sandy Wood stopped by on their way to the beach! He was also visited by Mommy and Daddy's friends April and Mark Peters and his future buddy lil Ralei Ann! What a very loved little boy!
This afternoon the nurses decided that his umbilical line needed to come out, since he was 7 days old! They would have to put in a PICC line in his arm to help him get the medicine that he needed. They were able to get his PICC line in after 2 attempts and get him all tapped up. The respiratory therapist also decided to put him back on the ventilator to give his body some more time to get ready for the CPAP. It was VERY hard for Mommy this afternoon watching her lil guy have all this done, but Walker is tough and he will bounce back quickly. Because of all the activity today, Walker needed his rest, and so there was no kangaroo time today for Mommy.
Hopefully tomorrow Walker will have a better day where he can get more rest and focus on his feedings and getting some fat rolls! He is such a strong little boy and we know this is nothing he can't handle!
Also, Mommy and Daddy would like to say a huge THANK YOU to every for all the donations, and gifts, and thoughtful gestures. We are beyond overwhelmed and touched so much by everyone's kindness! We feel so blessed to be able to be Walker's parents, and to see what God is doing daily through him! It is amazing how a hand as tiny as Walker's is able to touch so many lives!
