Max - Born at 6:44, Friday, May 21st. 1 lb 15 oz 14" He is our "chunker," at least compared to his older brother. Max is doing so well also considering the circumstances. He is also breathing on his own but is still being aided by a little oxygen over his nose. He definitely is working harder than Luke to breath. We are hoping soon that he will be off any type of breathing aid, but it almost looks more like he might have to be put back on the respirator for a while if he can't breath with less effort soon. He just breaks my heart when he breaths so hard; his little chest just sinks in so bad. They said that is normal, but it just looks like he hurts when he breaths.
Both Caleb and I just really want to thank everyone for all of the love and prayers and that have been washed over our new little family. I know people are praying me through because I am daily amazed by the grace and energy I have to deal with this whole situation. There are plenty of ups and downs daily, but just knowing that God has us in His hands and He is holding my little boys gives me the strength to meet each day. So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! It means so much to us!
