Auntie Sandy, Taylor Jo and Mason also came down this morning and got to see Walker in his open crib. They were so excited for how well he was doing with maintain his temperature and eating like a big boy. Sandy got to change a diaper and hold the little guy while the nurse listened to him. Taylor Jo was excited to watch him eat his bottle and couldn't get over how quickly he ate! We tried to get Mason to change a stinky diaper, but he just laughed! It is always so good to have friends that are like family visit and get to see how well the little guy is doing!
This afternoon at 3:00 he took his bottle well, but afterwards had some reflux. It is really hard for Mommy to watch the little guy gag and spit up and feel so helpless. Walker's reflux seems somewhat better since they took the tube out, but definitely still a problem for the little guy. We are really hoping that, like the doctors say, this will go away with time and as he matures. They try not to give medicine unless the reflux gets really bad, because the medicine causes side effects as well so we are hoping it will resolve itself soon.
It is hard to believe that Walker will be 10 weeks old on Friday and 36 weeks corrected gestational age. We are really praying that God will allow Walker to continuing making strides so that we can get him home as soon as possible. Please pray with us that God will allow Walker to make the gains necessary to make it back home to Snow creek, we can't wait to wake up each day with our son under the same roof!
