Hurry Up Time!

Mason has had a good day. They took him off the sippap today. I have been so educated on the world of NICU babies. It is called sippap, not c-pap. And I don't even know what sippap stands for...oh well. They took him off. I can actually see his face now. He has the tiniest little face. It's so cute. He is now in a little oxygen tent. He is having to work harder, but he is doing good. They were originally saying they would probably take him off the O2 tent in the morning, but I think they'll end up waiting, b/c they have to decrease the O2 gradually.

He is eating great. He might get to start on a bottle tonight. It just depends. I will find out at 8p.m. tonight when NICU opens back up. For now we are just taking one small step at a time. But they have all been positives strides, so I am thankful. I have discovered that I have a lot to be thankful for. Some of the babies in there have been there so long, and have lots of problems. Most of them are very pre-mature. Mason in a giant compared to most of them. There are two little twin girls next to him who weigh 3 pounds a piece.

I am doing good. Today is a better day. I went and took a nap, which I needed very badly. It has been hard to rest, but I just had to make myself. My mind goes crazy when I'm tired...and emotional...and hormonal. But I am feeling tons better. Well I have to go. I am meeting my sisters for dinner. See yall.

"It's a small world after all..." I had Lisa's daughter Bethany in Pre-K this year. If those babies turn out to look like their cousin, they will be beautiful. Hang in there Mom, Mason will be home soon!

Actually, when a person in is in his childhood years or during the adolescent, the hormones are found profusely. Beyond Solar Backpacks A few laptops along with lithium-ion batteries make use of technologies of SBS lighting battery system,which can measure battery??s life accurately. When my battery started losing it's juice I tried everything that I know of to keep from having to buy a new one.
