August 10, 2011: When I was born, I weighed 1 pound, 7 ounces & I’ve gained almost 3 ounces since then! I’ve got a lot more growing to do here at Mercy Children’s Hospital before heading home. I might have to stay until November...I guess that’s a long time. I have a special machine that’s helping me breath right now. I also have a tube in my belly that helps me eat. Hopefully, soon I’ll learn how to do this stuff on my own so I can go home with my Mom.
