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 95 - Getting Bigger

Benjamin is still going strong and is really growing. He is now 5 lbs, 12 ozs and is starting to act just like a full-term baby.

Benjamin's lungs are starting to improve and look and sound much better. They have now lowered the pressure settings on his CPAP from 6 from 5. This may sound like a small difference, but it is really a big step. He is making some great progress.

Tomorrow is another eye exam. Please pray that his eyes are still developing correctly.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. Please continue to pray for his eyes and lungs.
