Benjamin Chance is here!

As many of you know, Sherri and I recently had a new addition to our family. Benjamin Chance was born September 17, 2009 at 6:16 am. He was only 24 weeks old and weighed in at 1 pound, 5 ounces and was 12.25 inches long. Needless to say, he was extremely premature and very small. After 5 long months in the NICU, Benjamin was able to come home on February 10, 2010. Benjamin is doing great now and is moving on from his stay at the NICU. Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers; we really appreciate it.

If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.
Matthew 21:22

As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.
Ecclesiastes 11:5

Day 103 - Update

Just a quick update...Benjamin now weighs 6 lbs, 7 ounces; he is getting so big.

Benjamin's eye exam today was the same as last week, still mild ROP, but his eyes are still developing.

We are still waiting on the report for his kidney's and that should be in tomorrow.

Benjamin tried nasal cannula (NS) for the first time today and it seems like he handled it ok. He did have another bradycardia while on NS during one of his feeds, but he bounced back. Hopefully this gets under control soon.

They are taking it slow with him right now-switching him between CPAP and NS every 6 hours for the first 24 hours. Tomorrow, depending on how he is doing, they will put him back on CPAP if he is not handling NS or extend the time between CPAP and NS to every 12 hour if he is doing ok.

Please continue to keep Benjamin in your prayers.
