Day 86 update. Nothing but great news again, something we could get use to saying! Feeds were switched to bolus today, given over 2 hours. He tolerated it perfect. Next step will be over 1 hour, which at the rate Emmett is progressing, will be right around the corner! Dad was able to try his first bottle feeding today. It's not like feeding a calf lol. Of course Emmett gets choked up and scares the heck out of me. Minor event though, and he was back to sucking it down.

We did have a first today. Krystal attempted to breast feed Emmett with the help of the lactation nurse. Little man had been up for 3 hours looking around and interacting with us. When it came time to try it, he was so tired he couldn't keep his eyes open. So it was an unsuccessful attempt, but she'll try again soon.

We had a surprise eye exam sprung on us this afternoon. Emmett was doing so good, we hated to hear this. However, we're thankful for the follow ups. Emmett didn't appreciate the exam as usual, but the report was great. His eyes were looking great, and although he cant guarentee anything, he thought the chances were low that any follow up procedure would be necessary.

Thank you all for your continued thoughts and prayers!

Day 87 update. Chug-a-lug chug-a-lug, Emmett is getting his drink on! Today he was bumped up to 20 ml by bottle. I was able to give him his first 20 ml this afternoon, which he sucked down in record time. The nurse was so impressed at his ability to pace himself and keep breathing while nursing. Krystal got her opportunity to try breast feeding again. Her reaction was priceless when Emmett latched on; "oh my gosh!" With a little taste of milk and a bottle, it's impressive watching how aggressive little man gets when he's ready for a bottle!

We did have one concern arise from a random CBC done today. He alkaline phosphatase numbers were elevated, which brought concern for his liver function. They will continue to monitor, and he will likely get a repeat CBC soon. Praying this is nothing.

Thank you all for your continued thoughts, prayers and support. Your generosity is still prevalent, as Krystal and I are still receiving donations in the mail. We're truly blessed.

I think about Emmett all the time. Continued prayers for him and y’all. Our little one is three weeks old yesterday. He was born almost four weeks early but with zero complications. I can’t begin to imagine what y’all have endured, both mentally and physically. Emmitt will no doubt hear lots of stories and know how special he really is when he’s bigger and running around giving y’all heart attacks being a rough and tumble little boy.

Thanks everyone for the prayers. Here's the latest update on little man.

Day 100 update. 1...0...0... It's hard to believe we've been on this journey for 100 days now. There have been many ups and downs in our NICU journey, but through God's grace and Emmett's perseverance, we've made it this far and are nearing the end of this journey.

We made yet another big step in Emmett's progress today!! During rounds, the doctor inquired about Emmett's current respiratory needs. Hearing another good report, he gave the green light to try low flow cannula! This is especially exciting, as Emmett can be discharged on low flow if need be. Our goal is to be completely off oxygen support though! In addition, our little guy took his entire feeding by bottle twice now! This is a huge accomplishment for him. Both of these accomplishments are vital in being discharged!

It's becoming hard to contain our excitement. We know he still has some progress to make before going home is a reality. What orginally seemed like a long shot of a Christmas discharge now seems like a worse case scenario.

Being the 100th update, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone once again for all you have done for us. The support you've all shown us has be second to none. Foremost, our family has been instrumental in helping us through all of this. We're blessed to have such an amazing family. Our friends, aquaintances, and even complete strangers did everything from cooking us a meal, to donating to Emmett's care fund, and most importantly offering prayers. I wish we could write a thank you note to each and every one of you for what you did. There were so many of you that we just weren't able to keep track. But know that we'll never forget what you all did for us. As life becomes more busy for me with work and holidays, I'm going to write an update every other day now to help myself stay afloat. We appreciate you all following Emmett's progress so closely.

I think it would be awesome to see him keep growing up (1st birthday, first words, first steps, etc.) So glad he's doing well. God still works miracles.
