Update on My Little Superhero

Hello friends.  It's been a while since I've given an update on my little superhero.

He was released to come home in late September, only to be readmitted on October 18th.  He has not been gaining weight as much as the doctors think he should have been.  He's been having some feeding issues and is very uncomfortable.  As much as we all enjoyed the fact that he was home, (earlier than any of us expected) I know that he needs to be in the hospital until he is healthy and big enough to be at home.  He's up to 4 pounds 11 ounces.  

Someone made and donated these superhero capes to all the babies in the NICU and CCU.  He truly is my superhero.  

I had made this card for my daughter when baby was home, and she was struggling trying to keep her home in order, while trying to meet the needs of her newborn preemie.  

I would spend the days when I was visiting folding laundry, helping wherever I could, and of course holding my sweet little one.  

Sadly, the card arrived in her mailbox on the same day that he ended up going back into the hospital.  She felt a little defeated, but she's doing a great job keeping everything together.

Thanks for stopping by!

He truly is a little superhero Birgit, and God has His hand on little Callum...he will grow! And grow and grow and GROW!! How long ago those days seem where I had more Little Tykes furniture in our house than adult furniture and the messes were endless...what I wouldn't give to have that kind of life back with all those little voices and sweet hugs and kisses! Amanda will get through it and little Callum will be home where he belongs before you know it! Continued prayers my friend!! Hugs. :0)

Oh how precious is he, I am so sorry to hear he had to go back into the hospital but like you say it is probably the best thing for him, will pray it won't be long and he will be strong enough to come back home.
Your card is so precious both inside and out.

Oh my gosh, Birgit, he is just too precious. I am so happy for you and your family. I will keep him in my prayers that he is back home soon. And that card is just too adorable. Much love and hugs to you, my friend.
