Heart & Lungs

Cohen had his ROP check today and his eyes are still the same. It's good that they have been stable for the last few checks (he gets them every 2 weeks) but they are hoping his eyes will start to look better instead of just staying the same. Cohen will get a blood gas in the morning to see if they can wean his oxygen.

The plan is that next Friday Cohen will get another echo and then once the results of that are back, the pulmonologists from Children's will come see Cohen and hopefully help make a good plan to get this boy out of here safely! They will also get a chest xray just because he hasn't had one in awhile and they want to see what his lungs look like. So please pray that his heart will look better and not more enlarged and also that his lungs will continue to grow so that he can get weaned on his oxygen.

Cohen weighs 7 lbs 6 oz at his last weigh in. He has graduated from his newborn diapers up to a folded over size 1 diaper. I can't believe how big he is getting! He is starting to stay awake for longer periods of time. He has also been picking up his head and turning it over when he lays on his tummy. I think that he is starting to think about rolling over. When he is on his back he rolls over onto his side but then gets stuck. I am just so proud of him and how far he has come! We can't wait to get him home.
