Sorry this has taken so long, time is flying by! Little man is doing really good! Having him home really hasn't been bad, we are lacking in the sleep area but that is to be expected with any newborn. The first few days we had more issues with his feeding machine, but once we got that settled it has been smooth sailing. His went from weighing 6.15 when we got home to 7.55 a week later, so he is gaining the weight he needs. He still has his NJ (feeding tube), that will be in for a few more weeks. Right now it passes through his stomach and empties into his intestine, I am sure he will need it to feed into his stomach for a couple weeks to let his stomach adjust to digesting food before he can take a bottle.
We can't begin to express our gratitude to all who have been bringing us dinners. It has been so nice not having to worry about that, we will always be indebted to all who have helped us through all of this. We love and appreciate all you do!

  1. Wow he is resilient! I am so happy he is doing so well. Your girls are precious with him and this has been such a testimony builder to watch how you all have pulled through this. I love you Stewart family.
