Pierce is exactly one month old today! It's hard to believe that it is already May 12th. God has been so good in bringing us through this first month and we feel so blessed to have our little boy here with us.
Pierce did great throughout the night as he continues to rest easy and recover from his surgery. I'm sure as he's waking up, he's probably feeling much better than he did before the procedure. Thank you all for your prayers. We are praying for a quiet day and that Pierce will begin to make strides in terms of progress. He is on the lowest ventilator settings today, which is great. If things continue this way, they will most likely attempt to place him back on the CPAP once he is fully awake. They will also resume feedings today so please be praying that no infection develops in his bowels. That is the biggest concern still.
I (Lindsay) just got back from my follow-up doctor's visit. Fortunately, I am healing well and was able to be released today. Thank you all for your continued prayers for my health as well. They are much appreciated. It was also neat to once again see the doctor who delivered Pierce and to be able to tell her thank you. She shared with me how nervous she was delivering such a tiny baby. It was also so special to rejoice with her and her staff as we talked about the many miracles that God has performed in our lives throughout this past month.
We will try to snap some photos tonight as we celebrate Pierce's birthday and we will try to post, so check back later :) And please join us in rejoicing in God's goodness as we celebrate at 7:42 tonight.
Christ is All,
Lindsay, Nik and Pierce
