Finally Starting to Feel Good Again!

Today was a great day!  Levi had a big poop overnight :)  This morning we cuddled together and slept in until 8:30.  He chilled in his recliner while I drank coffee, then he laid on my bed and gazed out the window with his kitty mama, Skittles, nearby to keep an eye on him.  We got him dressed in cozy warm clothes and went out to lunch with Daddy, then shopping at Target.  He stayed in the stroller the whole time with no fussing whatsoever, looking around with interest.  There was no crying in the car either!  Then off to our grandson Charlie's first birthday party.  Now he is sitting in front of the TV watching Baby Einstein, and actually watching it.  I don't think we've had such a lovely day since going on three months ago.  Thank you, Jesus!

He's Pooping!

Finally, Levi is pooping on his own!  He overfilled diapers on Monday night, Tuesday night, and Wednesday night.  Yesterday he was still very cranky. We have been venting the feeding tube with a large syringe to allow the gas to escape his tummy.  This works very well, and within 15 minutes he settles down and feels better.  Today he has been very relaxed and not fussy at all.  He's still sleeping a lot and isn't smiling, but he's well on the way.  We can't expect him to feel completely better within a couple days, when he's been sick for two and a half months.  We are just thrilled that his bowels are beginning to work again.  Thanks for all your prayers!
