Jake & Ben, 8 weeks old
The roller coaster ride continues! We were told Ben was coming home Saturday but his homecoming has been delayed once again. He continues to intermittently breath fast, which they believe is still related to the fluid in the lungs. The diuretics are helping with the breathing episodes but have caused him to loose weight. He went from 4 pounds 12 ounces to 4 pounds 6 ounces. The doctors want to get him on an effective dosage of diuretics and have him gaining weight at the same time. Not sure how long this will take…
We are beside ourselves. I don’t even know what to write… The doctors keep telling us he will be fine we just have to be patient. We are trying so hard to be patient but we worry 24 hours a day. We know things could be a lot worse but seeing Ben in the hospital by himself is so heartbreaking.
Jake is doing really well…other then suffering from separation anxiety like the rest of us. Its obvious he enjoys all of the constant love he is getting. We are making up for lost time! :) Soon enough we can do the same for Ben.
Please keep Ben in your prayers!
