Day 16 - Smiling at mommy

Trayc's mom took the "night hours" last night. Tristan had another very restless night so we gave him glycerin and it seemed to work again, therefore this is something we will start doing regularly along with adding Mylicon in his feeding tube. His apnea monitor only went off once, which meant he stopped breathing for 20 seconds, but he immediately started breathing again. Tristan had another great day! It is so sweet when I talk to him and he turns his little head, looks at me and smiles - he knows his mommy! Trayc finished his 3-day job so that he can be home with us for the next few weeks. I didn't feel good today, still having more hours of tiredness than hours of energy (the doctor said this is expected due to my complications in the hospital) so I spent the day resting and just awaiting for that burst of energy to hit. As promised to Tanner, we celebrated Christmas by listening to Christmas music during dinner and then we sat on the couch, spent time with Trayc's mom because she is leaving tomorrow afternoon and then we went to bed early. Please pray for Trayc's mom as she takes her last "night hours", please pray for Tristan's continued strength, please pray for us as we face another new day tomorrow.

Praying for Trayc's mom on night shift tonight and for safe travel home. Doesn't it just melt your heart to see Tristan smile at you. I can only imagine what he is thinking about all the love. Treasure these precious times and I am praying for your strength to return. Yay, Trayc home with his boys for two weeks. I'll bet he is so excited for this time. Day 16, what a blessing from the Lord. Enjoy!!!

In this time of hustle and bustle, Tristan is there to remind us of the true, really true meaning of Christmas! Praying for your renewed strength, and for your mother-in-law. God Bless your family, Cathy & Annabel
