AM I TOO LATE?



Hope that I am not too late to wish everyone a very happy new year!!!!

Our day was very peaceful and refreshing after the excitement of the past month.
For those who don't know , the month of December 2008 started off with a bang
for us. On December 1,2008, our first great-grandbaby was born. Baby Noah was
not due until January 8,2009....he was so tiny,but so perfect, except for his lungs.
He was put on a vent.,had to be given blood, had a feeding tube (and several other
tubes that I don't know what they were for). He also had to be under a special light
for jaundice. But he is such a great little fighter that he was able to go home for the
first time on Christmas Eve. What a Gift !

He is doing very ,very well. He eats like a hungry horse. He is very alert to everything
going on around him. He is growing so fast, the premmie clothes are about to small already.

Go back to December 1st on this blog to see his earlier pictures. I hope I can get a couple
of the latest ones to post. He is such a precious baby. Thanks for all the prayers and good
wishes for Baby Noah's health.

How precious! My nephew and his wife had a baby this past summer prematurely due to some difficulties. Her poor little intestines had grown outside of her abdomen. But, as with Noah, to see her now you would never know it. Thank goodness for the advances in medical technology that allow these little angels to get what they need. Happy New Year to you and yours too!

What a doll! My grandson Lucas was born premature (at about 30 weeks) two years ago on Thanksgiving. He had to stay in the hospital until January but now he is THRIVING and a typical 2-year-old, running around, babbling and driving his mommy and daddy crazy. :-)

Best to you and Happy New Year!
