and prayers to you and Owen.

I am a 40 year old unschooling, belly dancing, artist-mama of one almost 8 year old. I just had brain surgery and blogging.jpg about it a bit because it's just so surreal.

Our thoughts are with you. Owen is so lucky to have you as his momma.

Prayers for Owen and your whole family. I am so glad you are pumping for him...it's liquid love and healing in addition to food.

Bright blessings to you all.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Owen, Owen's mama and even Owen's difficult daddy (I don't whether he deserves them, but I know he needs them right now).

Congratulations on the pumping! Will the NICU let you give your "spare" milk to their other preemies? Not that that's your responsibility, but I hear that some NICU mamas with a high supply get a lot of comfort from it.

There's one not-happy thing I feel like I need to share: I think it's really important that you push the doctors for a specific dx on the growth disorder/dwarfism thing. Sadly, there are some that are incompatible with life, and knowing for sure about that will help you make the best choices about things like weaning from the vent and pain medication for Owen. These conditions are VERY VERY rare, though, I am not saying that Owen has one.

Thank you for the update. I'm happy that Owen is stable, I'll keep praying that he continues to improve and grow strong. Breastmilk and love are the two best things you could ever give him right now.

Owen has a great couple of days! They have turned down his oscillator a bit and he has been maintaining nice, high oxygen sats of 98-100. We are praying he continues to be strong... he already has surprised the doctors with his progress and I am SO proud of him! I was reminded yesterday that "Owen" means "young warrior" or "young fighter". I thought that was pretty neat. Quite fitting, I think. I have made Owen a website where I am updating his progress frequently. www.freewebs.com/owentimothy Feel free to stop by... I have posted many pictures! Thank you all so much for the love & encouragement. It means SO much to me and really does help me to find strength.

Thanks for the update and the link to your website. You have beautiful children. It does seem very fitting that Owen's name means "young warrior."
