Much better

Thank you so much to everyone who is praying for Cooper. Today he is much better. The transfusion was just what he needed as he is breathing much better now.

His tests are all coming back better but they still believe he has some kind of infection going on. That means at least five days of antibiotics and at least five days with no food.
He is still pretty fussy which I believe probably has to do with hunger. The nurse did decide to swaddle him to help sooth him. He loves to be swaddled! After two weeks of clothes and swaddling, he was very unhappy about being naked all day yesterday.

Since we can't practice nuzzling, today we are just cuddling. Look how cute he is with his skin all pink again.


  1. I get tears every time I read your blog! Cooper has two of the most Amazing parents he could have ever dreamed of having! I am so Proud of you and Jake and how strong, loving and supportive you are with baby Coop!I can't wait to hold him and tell him how much he is Loved along with all of the silly things his daddy did as a young boy along with how proud we all are of him now that he has taken on the roll of Dad.
    Sending ALL our Love and Prayers,
    Jacie, Olivia & Ella

  2. Maggie...I have been catching up on your amazing story. Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy, Cooper. I know some of what you are going through as my twin boys were born at 31 weeks. I remember all the concern and special care we took to get the babies home. The worry and day to day progress or otherwise is an emotional roller coaster. Soon enough he really will be a pudgy, gurgling toddler. It is so hard to see that at this point, I know. Stay strong and rest as much as you can. You sleep way less when they come home. My thoughts and prayers are with your sweet family. My babies are 10 now and one wears the same size shoe as me. I bet you can't imagine Cooper slipping on your shoes to run grab the mail for you - but he feels like in a blink. xo Holly
