Happy 5 Weeks Mr. Man

We had a pretty ok week last week... Dougs swelling has started to decrease and he looks beautiful. Things were going well over the weekend. Brad said it best, he is getting better but we are cautiously optimistic are taking each win in stride and preparing for the next battle. His numbers aren't looking as good as they should today, so he will have to get higher doses of meds we've been trying to wean him off of, and back up on his amp settings that we've been trying to go down on, then stablize again before they're able to make any changes moving forward.

I saw my baby cry real tears yesterday... nothing is worse than hearing the cry of a helpless baby, except seeing the tears run from the eyes of a helpless baby who is crying soo loudly without making a peep. It tore my heart apart. I want so badly to hold him close, tell him "mama's here, everything will be ok" and rock him to sleep. One day.....

Gramma Laine (my mom) is working with a few people to put together fundraisers for our little man. More information is soon to come. But if you would like to help out or donate anything feel free to contact her, Linda Scott at meremom1@yahoo.com

Thank you all for your continued prayers and support...

God please bless our little man and heal him quickly,

Brad and Mere
