Okay, so you know how some people call you by your first name, others by your last (Mr. So and So), and still others by a nickname or tagname? My visit to New York included an interesting conversation with my mom about this subject. It never even crossed my mind that different people would feel differenly about this, as its not something you really ever think about.  Basically, she was talking about her father and how …

Today we went in for Alijah’s first appointment with the pulminologist to check and see how his lungs are doing. They did a checkup on him, and did a test that they called the “Room Air Challenge”. Basically, what they did was take him off the oxygen tank and let him just breathe normal room air. They had an oxygen saturation monitor on him to make sure he kept his oxygen level up. He did good …

So…after 9 weeks of being in the hospital, Alijah will probably be coming home at the end of this week (Week 10)! It is surreal. He has been here in this world for 2 and a half months, and has never been home. They ran some tests on him today to determine why his billieruben level is rising instead of falling like it should. His liver may still be too immature, or he may have a …

So we went and saw this movie with a bunch of friends. Basically, our church purchased all the tickets in a 500 seat theatre. All the tickets were free, and it was the church members mission to give them out to friends. Church members were free to attend the showing as well, but only if they came with people that did not attend our church. This was an outreach to the community. ...

It was a really nice day today, about 65 degrees! Too bad it will be back down in the high 40’s tomorrow.  We are going to see The Passion of The Christ on Wednesday, and we invited about 18 people to come with us. It should be a good time. Alijah is very close to coming home, as he is now working on what could be his last step towards being released - breastfeeding. Monica’s supply …

First off, just so everyone knows - Monica’s birthday is tomorrow, February 24! Be sure to send her an email at monic AT amedwards.com   Also, just under a month away is Alijah’s due date / adjusted birthday! We hope to have him home by then (March 21) with us. He is taking great strides, but as the story goes in neonatal intensive care, something can always happen that keeps him there longer. However, we do …

Reality Begins To Set In

Categories: Alijah, Personal,

So with each day that passes, it becomes more and more real that we actually have a baby that is our own. Having a new child that you only see 4 times out of the week for a few hours creates an odd perception. It almost feels like you are just visiting someone elses child. You arent in charge - they are. As Alijah continues to grow and heal and develop, the feeling starts to …
