This is "Leo the Lion" he is Carter's crib mate!

1st family photo!!

Carter's new name tag! That sure makes things REAL!

Carter has been being fed through a tube every three hours. He is up to 15 ml over an 40 min time span. His bilirubin levels are up and so that is why he is sporting some sunglasses and under the light. Bowel movements are not happening again and this will be affecting his bilirubin level because he can't get that stuff out. If he doesn't have a movement by 5pm today, they will administer another subpository to get things rolling again. As far as his respritory rate, he sometimes spikes to 100 but does real good during feedings when we are holding him. Carter's doctor has said that he really needs to be at a 70 consistantly before we can introduce a bottle. This could take up to 5 days on average and we are on day 3 right now. Therefore, the next 48 hours will should see some improvement. Prayers are always welcome!!

Garett, Carter and I would like to thank everyone for all the thoughts and prayers. We are very blessed to have such amazing friends and family!
