Our grandson, Declan, is finally out of the hospital and appears to be doing well. We got word this morning that he now weighs 6 pounds 2.5 ounces and the doctor is impressed with his weight gain. His Daddy weighed 6 pounds 4 ounces when he was born. He will continue to wear a apnea monitor but we are not sure how long that will continue. Our son was going to visit him this weekend in New Jersey but has come down with a sinus infection and is afraid to go.
I can only dream of holding him for now and wish we could have more pictures of him but they don’t come very often. I’m keeping a journal of what we know about him and of pictures of him to share with him. I’ve also started a collection of books to read to him hopefully in the near future.
This is all we know for now but I know in my heart that God will make sure he knows about his other family in Virginia and will provide a way for all of us to see him soon!!
Declan means “man of prayer”!
