Today was one of our "BEST DAYS EVER" (11-19-09)

Joshua has been pooping more and more today, after 11 days we (mommy & daddy) finally got to change his first dirty dipper. It was so exciting for us but at the same time scary, he still has wires on him that make us a little nervous.
The doctors did not expect Joshua to get to his next step till the middle of next week (“maybe Thanksgiving” doctors said) but since they saw that he is doing so good they decided to go ahead and let him taste a little of my breast milk. They are starting off with a very small amount in his feeding tube every 3 hours, Joshua was not able to digest all of the milk but they said he did well for his first day of feeding.
Today was also his first day back on a scale since he was born! It was a big deal for him since he had not left his bed ever since he was put on there in the delivery room; his surgery was even on his same bed. Joshua’s weight did go up slightly, and its way better than going down since a lot of babies in the hospital usually lose weight, not Joshua he is still holding strong!
Tonight was the first night that we left Joshua’s bed site at a decent time (10:00pm). We usually stay with him till at least 2:00am. Since he has been doing so good for the past couple of days and his two favorite doctors (Dr. Cho & Dr. Rios) are in this evening and watching over him we felt at ease to turn in early. We pray that tomorrow will be just as good as today!
Joshy’s Mommy


  1. I am very happy to read Joshua is doing better each day. Please let me know when the Doctor's move baby Joshua out of NICU, so Oscar and I can go meet him.

  2. I'm so happy Melissa and yes I'm crying, but because I'm overjoyed that Joshua is doing so great.

  3. I'm happy to hear he is doing so good.I'm glad you are able to give him breast milk, that's the best way to keep him healthy and help him gain weight!
