Here is a new pic of my baby. He is two months and one day old.\ and would be 34 weeks gestation now.

I don't know if you had a chance to look into circumcision yet, so I'll post this link which has alot of great info/studies/videos on the subject http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=822675

I wish you little one will be home very soon, healthy, whole, perfect!

Hayden started out life on CPAP, then the high flow nose cannula, then to the nose cannula... then when he got down to .5 liters and did well on that for a few days they took him off... just for a day to see how he did... and they didn't put him back on it until he had the blood transfusions... each time they transfused they put him back on the nose cannula. His little tiny nostrils looked like they were going to rip. He had an NG Tube and the nose cannula.

What beautiful boys you have!
I know the NICU is tough, but from the looks of your blog you are doing a great job, mama!:

Update!!

Sorry it took so long to reply. My baby is home now after being in the NICU for three months. He is not on O2 or anything else. He did have eye surgery from having ROP. He isn't in the clear yet, but things are looking great. He weighs 7lbs 14.5 oz now. He is rotten, and demands all my attention. LOL...

Thanks everyone.

So glad to see that he's home! I've followed your story since my twins were born at almost the same gestation as your boy. I can't believe how much he weighs, that's awesome!
