Still Waiting!..Coming Home?

So, we are still unsure as to whether or not Ayden will be coming home this week but he is still doing well. He had his 2nd hearing test this week and he actually passed!... They said his hearing is within a normal range & he will not need hearing aids or anything of the sort!...It kind of upsets me thinking of the audiologist at Dayton refusing to do another test knowing how worked up he had gotten... He is still off oxygen and his feeds will be transitioned to bottle/bolus feeds during the day and continuous at night. Tomorrow he has his ml&b to get rid of more lesions and to determine how often he will need to come back for treatments. How he does during this surgery and how well he re coups afterwards is the determining factor as to whether he will come home this week or not...We are patiently waiting to find out!

Meanwhile, this week Ayden has been a lot more active than he has ever been before....He found out how much he likes his hands!...He is a binkie fanatic & when his binkie isn't around he goes a bit crazy!....

I know I'm biased but I just think its the cutest thing!


Here are some bare faced pix of my lil cutie too!

I love him sooo much!


  1. He is so adorable!!! I love the video! I don't think Darbi had even found her hands at that age. It took her forever to start slurping on those! I'm so glad he's doing so well. It's about time, right? :) That last snuggly picture is so sweet. I love a happy sleeping baby!

  2. Oh, he is SO cute. Look at those lips. So glad he is doing well, and hope you get to bring him home soon.

  3. Athena, He looks AMAZING! I'm so happy for you. Praying for good results this week. Lots of love to your little man!

  4. He's so cute! And I can't believe he's completely off the O. What an amazing little boy!!!

    And btw, LOVE Clifford! Dax had the same paci and we still have it. That little binky got him through some looong days and nights!

  5. Yipee for all the good news. :-) Love the new pics. Isn't it just the greatest feeling ever to see his face free of tape and tubes... it's wonderful.
