I've come a mighty long way!

I'm now 3 years old and have started preschool this year. I still have my G-Tube but am working on my nutrition so one day it can be removed. My mom says she's so proud of me. I've come a mighty long way!! I enjoy singing my ABC's & other children songs. I know all my shapes and colors and even can count backwards!! My Mom said your organization has touched so many lives including ours. We will be forever grateful!! Love you guys.

Growing up

Hi GiFT, look at me, I've come a mighty long way!  I still have my very own nurse to help with my g-tube but I'm working on eating different foods.  I weigh 17lb.15oz now and Mom says I have to keep putting on the pounds.  I'm walking and talking and keeping Mommy busy.  I got a big boy hair cut, too.

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.
