Rockin' the CPAP!

So much to update on….
Cooper is doing amazing! Ever since he got the CPAP on, on Wednesday he has been rockin’ it!! It is so great! He just needed to grow a little bit, and let his little lungs get ready – and look at him now!! He is breathing at 21% {which is what we breathe} and doing AWESOME!!!
It looks like he may have a UTI. Poor little guy, but he is already on antibiotics for it. Should clear up pretty soon!

He had an eye exam and looks like he has ROP. { Retinopathy of Prematurity} – this is very normal in preemies. It occurs in premature babies when abnormal blood vessels and scar tissue grow over the retina. It can cause sight problems and sometimes blindness. On a scale of 5, Coopers case is a 1-2 and it should correct itself at this stage. They say it is nothing to worry about and they will check it again in a few weeks.

He is weighing in at 3 pounds 12.7 ounces!!! WOW MOM WOW!!! He is almost 4 pounds. When you think 4 pounds, it sounds so little…. But in this case, it is HUGE!

Everything else is well; he is still eating and digesting like a champ!!!

 I know you have seen this next picture, but it looks pretty cute in the frame!!

Everything for Cooper is going so great right now! We only have our Great and Amazing God for that.
Keep the prayers coming, everyday!!!
