Hernia It Is...

...the doctor confirmed it is a hernia. he referred us to a pediatric surgeon and we see him on thursday. i'm actually going to call them on monday and let them know that if they have any cancellations to call me and we will be there. he's doing surprisingly well. the doctor said the if it turns black and blue and he's crying and can't be consoled then to get the the er. he's going to have to have surgery though so just keep praying. i hurt for him daily when he's upset or straining and crying. i can't imagine his pain. i feel so bad for him. he's such a tough baby though.

No More Please...

update.....sawyer did really well on shot day. he cried very little after the shots and there was no swelling or brusing in the days to follow. he was fussy 2 days later but who wouldn't.

now on to what's bothering me. we are going to the doctor again today because when i was giving him his bath last night i noticed a bump right above his penis and we think that it may be a hernia(sp?) please be in prayer for him. he's been through so very much and i just want to cry to think that he may have to be going through even more. i'll try to get back to the computer to post the outcome of the visit sometime this weekend. thanks everyone for your prayers and support.

New Pics

daddy and baby

my sweet boy

war eagle!
my hubby's cousin took these today. it was very hard for us to get baby boy to work with he. first he was fussy and wanted to eat and then he knocked out and we were able to get some pics but not without some pee-pee being sprayed on us.

we don't have a confirmed 6lbs weight yet but last monday at his doctors apt he was 5lbs 14oz. he's been gaining an ounce a day and sometimes well over an ounce a day so that being said we believe that he weighs over 6lbs now.

please be praying for us on monday. he gets his 2 months shots on monday and i may loose it. hopefully not though. just pray for my little guy that he does okay and that i can hold it together for him. thanks everyone for you comments thoughts and prayers i love, love, love hearing from everyone. it looks like i may only get computer time once a week for a while but that's okay. i'm still here though so don't leave me. :)

Still Alive

it's been a long time since i've posted because we don't have a computer at home and if we did we wouldn't have internet access because it's an expense that we just can't have right now so that being said i don't get to get on the computer very much. but here i am. sawyer is doing really well. at his dr. apt on monday he weighed 5lbs 5oz. he's growing every day. my mom left on wednesday so it's just been me and him during the day. it's been great but i am tired. on thursday night he had his best night ever. he went 4 hours between feedings. i never thought i would see the day that i was happy to get 4 hours rest at a time. (well acutally it's less than that i guess but whatever)
we go back to the dr on monday for another weight check. he's still not nursing very well. the dr said that is will happen though just to keep working with him. he said that boys are just lazy. :)
not much else to report here. i'll try to post pics when i can just wanted to update about him. thanks for all the prayers. keep praying.

Lots of Pics

Home at Last

so thanks to everyone for their comments about him coming home. we are really excited and tired. we stayed thrusday night in the hospital to see what it was going to be like to bring him home. not that we were going to change our minds or anything. :)
anyways he was on a 4 hour sch. so we thought great we will keep him to that. well his first feeding was less than 4 hours so we fed him and then from then on we were off. there isn't really a sch that we are going by. he eats every 3 and a half to 4 hours sometimes less than that. he is however nursing and taking his bottle very well. it's not always hard to keep him awake for his feedings just sometimes hard. he really like to eat. m- has been really good helping out he really is a great dad. not that i had any doubts about it. i don't have any pics from his coming home day yet but i promise that when i get them i will get to posting them.
thanks you guys for you kind, encouraging words and prayers. we will defiantly need them in the next couple of days. love everyone.
