Denton is 32 weeks gestation!

Yea for 32 weeks!! Lyndon was born at 33 weeks. Denton's 2 1/2 weeks old and now weighs 3.9lbs!!! This is a big deal. Since he's over 1600 grams he may get to put clothes on soon. We're sending clothes to the hospital tonight. YEA!! This little guy is doing wonderful. Thank you so much to everyone for praying. We know without a shadow of a doubt God is the great physician and all over this little guy. If I can continue to send out specific prayer request: please pray for his red blood cell count to go up. This isn't anything alarming or unusual with a little guy his age, but just as his momma and daddy we want it to be higher; to keep gaining weight (as the day comes where he will begin bottle feeding weight gain will slow down, so we want as much as we can now); continued prayer to keep infection away; and what we call in the NICU world episodes, for them to continue to stay at a minimum to none; along with continued prayer for sweet big brother's heart, peace and comfort and for momma and daddy's wisdom with him; and lastly for us momma and daddy too!!! It is the weirdest emotion being a grown family of 4 and still not living it all together. But as we know and are standing on, we will be soon and this is all in God's plan.

"My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts," says the LORD. "And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine." Isaiah 55:8 NLT

Thank you everyone!

Sounds like Mr. Denton is doing great! I will continue to keep you all in my prayers. He is one precious little boy! All of this brings back many memories of our time in the NICU. I remember how exciting it was to reach that 1600 gram point and to get to put clothes on Mason. Congratulations again! :)
