Way To go Nolan!!!!!

Last week went great, nolan's nurse came over and he now weighs 8lbs 13.5oz!
he's getting to be a chunky monkey!Nolan has also started to hold his head up, and loves to play patty cakes.He much loves to be in the car looking out the window and smiles , he's so darn cute!My dad's g/f bought nolan his christmas stocking that has baby's first christmas on it with a slot so we put a picture of him in.We are excited to have him for the holidays! he's our present.So far Nolan is doing excellent! he's developing,feeding well,sleeping great and most of all thriving!!!
He is not imcompatible with life, and doctors who say so should come and meet our nolan.

Today I took Nolan to his pediatrition to make sure that his virus has subsided and that he sounded clear,she took a good long listen to his heart, lungs and chest and told me everything sounded back to normal! His lungs were clear! i had the biggest smile and sigh of relief, no hospital! Also the nurses say that he is their favourite! So we are so glad and happy that he is better and we are looking forward to celebrating his 5 month birthday next wednesday! thank you for all your prayers and thoughts.

I would just like to update everyone on Nolan this week,since his cardio appointment he has caught a nasty cold we thought yesterday he seemed better, but when he woke this morning he sounded very yucky when coughing.I called the nurse as it was day 6 and i just knew something was worse when i put my ear up to his back i heard some weezing.She insisted and i agreed it was time for him to see a doctor so off to his pediatrition we went.She checked him over and assured us it wasnt heart failure that is was a viral infection that sounded like he might have slight phneaumonia in his left lung he was prescribed antibiotics and tamiflu, we go back in the morning to see if he needs further treatment.Many prayers are needed for our sweet boy as we dont want him to be admitted to any hospitals.His oxygen level was in the 90s which is good and he still continues to smile and coo.We continue to hope he can pull through this sickness on his own he's come so far.

This morning Nolan and I took the train to his heart appt. at 8am, It was a very nervous ride not knowing what they would find,But i tried to keep my head high and think positive for Nolan.He got weighed and is 8lbs 12oz! such a chunky monkey now!
After the tech finished with the echocardiogram we were put into a room to wait for his doctor,she came in with a smile on her face and asked how Nolan was doing.I answered great!She went on to explain that by what she saw nothing has changed and nothing has gotten worse, this was music to my ears!!! PTL. She checked him over, took a listen to his lungs, heart, and tummy.She was very pleased with everything, she then got a nurse to check his oxygen levels, that was also perfect.The medicine she prescribed to him 2 weeks agi has been working on any extra fluid build up he may have had.So another great report for us and everyone who is following Nolans journey he continues to be our miracle baby each and everyday he is with us!

Today Nolan had a follow up appointment with his pediatrition, his weight is 8lbs 7oz
Not much from 2 weeks ago due to the medication he's on which makes him loose all his water weight.He also grew in length too! 21.5inches long!!! Dr.Malik is very please with how he looks and his progress, we talked alittle about getting Nolan some hearing tests and sight tests, we know he can do both, but we just want to know if it's perfect.She brang up the idea of having an in home physiotherapist comeing out to do some excersizes to try and get him to roll over along with some other things.His strength is getting stronger, we know he is behind but we just focus on the positives in what he's doing in development!
