Happy Holidays!

I'm so sorry! I haven't updated this in so long! Moving and taking care of new baby has been a little bit busier then I anticipated. I hope everyone is having a great holiday so far. I know I'm so so so grateful for everything this year. Being home with my family is the best thing in the world. I never ever take it for granted.

Andrew weighs 11lbs and 7 ounces. He has come so far! He is still on oxygen but it is easy to manage. We have been dealing with so many preemie issues for so many months we almost forgot about the spina bifida but it came rearing its ugly head. We went to urology and they said Andrew's bladder isn't functioning well. He has way too much bladder pressure. A normal person has 40% pressure before they realize they have to go to the bathroom. Andrew's goes above 110% before he realizes he needs to go. So I have started cathing him. It is also very easy to manage. A little time consuming but he has been such a good sport about it. My heart broke for him though. Knowing he will do this the rest of his life is tough. However, I know he will know nothing else so it probably won't bother him. Being at Children's in Philly and looking at what some other families are dealing with I have to keep counting my blessings. Plus he is doing so well in other areas.

I hope everything has a great holiday!!!
