Finally an update!!

Daisy,Sampson , and Mayson

Long time no see. Jaycie decided to give me the password so I could finally update this. jk
The picture is Mayson in October... He is now about 15-16lbs. He is doing pretty well. He has had a lot of ear infections and we are going to take him to an ear, nose and throat Dr. to see if he need to have tubes placed. We are also going to go see the neurologist in March for a follow-up on the hydrosephelis.
He is just getting into eating solids and loving it. We hope this will help him gain more weight and become a big chub! We have to pin all of his pants to make them fit in the waist, but he is so tall all his pants are becoming floods! No RSV problems execpt getting the insurance to cover the shot! What a pain to have to go threw this again with new insurance.
Mayson is seeing a wonderful in home health specialist. Everything for his development is going right on schedule. He is rolling all over and should be crawling soon. Although he would probably perfer walking, he loves to roll around to get Daisy and Sampson's hair and rip it out!! Daisy loves to play with him and Sampson was cool before it was cool to be cool so he can't possible be seen around Mayson.
Mayson is also very interested in his older cousins and they are very interested in him! Zara @ 2 years, thinks she is the mom and has to do everything for him. McKayde @ 4 years thinks he is old enough to babysit. Boy wouldn't that be nice!
Hope everyone had great Holiday's!
We will try and get more updates more often... Thanks for all the love and support!!
Jody, Paul and Mayson

Whether you believe it or not.. that is the same monkey. I still can hardly believe it when I see it.

The good, the bad and the ugly.

Well really there is no ugly.. but there is good and bad. The good: Mayson weighs 6lbs 7ozs. The bad: he's been in the hospital for the past week. After turning blue and scaring Jody to death he had to be life flighted back to PCMC. Everything looks good now and it seems he may have been released from the hospital a little too early. They think he had an infection, which turned out to be E coli, before he left the hospital the first time. So it caused him to stop breathing. He should be able to get back home with his mom and dad by Monday. He looks fabulous! Here are some pics from when he was home. I'll have to get some more current ones. He is really changing.

Today is the Day!

After only 82 days of hospital living... Mayson is finally coming home!!! Yep that's right he's got the all clear and should be leaving the hospital soon! Paul and Jody spent the night at PCMC last night and they weren't sure if they would let him go today but the Dr. decided there isn't anything left for them to do for him at the hospital. He is going home with his reservoir a decision will be made on that later. As it looks right now he most likely will not need to be shunted. Exciting isn't it? I know they can't wait to have him home. He now weighs 5lbs 9ozs. I will post some pics of his homecoming!

5 lbs 5 oz

Well that's how much Mayson weighed yesterday. So he is probably up to 5 lbs 6 oz today. He is getting better and better with his feeds everyday. He is completely OFF of oxygen. He just looks so cute you can see his face so much better. Now he just needs to get that tube out of his nose. That will happen soon enough. The practioner was saying that she didn't think he would have to be in the hospital longer than a week! It seems like we all thought this day would never come.. and now it's almost here! Amazing! Jody had a baby shower on Saturday and got lots of nice things. She's having another one this Saturday and she should be pretty much set!

Don't shoot the messenger

Well.. obviously my reporting skills are not good enough. I don't even know why I bother. Well.. I guess I know.. I do it for the people. Yeah. Duh. Anyway did any of you have problems with me using the word veins instead of ventricles??? I thought not. We all knew what I meant anyway. I have to apologize for not getting the facts straight .. I'm sure you were all sitting there going.. gee I have no idea what she means. Yeah right. :P Neeeeeeeewayzzzzzzzzzzzzz lol As Jody (the momma) said.. he has not been tapped since the 16th. They took an ultrasound yesterday and I haven't heard the results but if everything looks good there he can go home as soon as he is taking full feedings by mouth. He is still being fed through the tube for about half of his feeds I guess. I think he just takes after his dad.. and now that he knows that he doesn't have to do any work for his food he's just like.. I'm not going to suck like a sucker... naaahhh. lol Just kidding Paul! These pics are from one of Mayson's baths. They are pretty recent maybe 5 days old. Enjoy.... not sure what's up with that one of Jody holding him.. I'll try to fix it. You may be able to tell that these are scanned pics. Get in the now.. that's what I say.

4 lbs 12 ozs and counting...

Mayson is still doing great! He will hopefully be home in a few weeks. Like Jody mentioned in a comment Mayson had some ultrasounds.. for his liver and his brain. The one for his liver was fine and his head was pretty good the veins are still a little dilated but they weren't too concerned. He will have another u/s on his head on Tuesday. He still has not had to be tapped and I think it's been longer than a week so he's doing incredibly well that way. Jody and Paul are still up there everyday. I know they're really excited that he is going to be able to come home soon! It'll happen before we all know it. I think Curtis has posted some pics over on his flickr account.. so check em out!
