Buddy is one month old today! (But just 34 weeks gestationally) He celebrated by getting a blood transfusion late this morning. His numbers were low, and that may be why he was having a hard time having energy enough to coordinate sucking/swallowing/breathing. We are praying he learns this as soon as he can. He is up to 4 lbs 6 oz – exactly 1 lb more than his birthweight. We are thankful for all of the progress he has made, not only in weight, but also in all of his other little victories. This has been the longest month of my life, but it also feels like he was just born. I can’t imagine our life without him.
I was hoping to post a picture of him tonight, but I am tired. It has been a long day for me for a variety of reasons. I am ready to crawl into bed.
