Mercies New Every Morning

Thank you all for your prayers! Today was a much better day! Cannon was much more alert and it was wonderful to be able to see his eyes, talk to him, and FEED him! He was able to eat for all of his feedings today and did quite well. Still room for improvement, but we'll take the small victories. He was more awake and content. His vital signs were all stable throughout the day, and Ali was able to begin nursing him today. Which meant: she got to hold him! She was beyond excited. She fed him around 3:30 this afternoon, and didn't move until almost 9:30...then it was Trey's turn and he was equally excited. We know that sweet Cannon still has a long road ahead of him in the next few weeks (to include at least one more surgery), but just for tonight we're praising God for each little blessing, and focusing on those! Please continue to pray! We are all eternally greatful!

I also caught this next picture tonight. Think he's trying to tell me something?
"Ok Aunt Vesti...enough pictures already!"

Sweet, sweet baby! Thank you all for your continued prayers! I'll be taking my computer to the hospital tomorrow. Hopefully Ali will be able to do the update. If not, I'll post when I get home!

"Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23

I can't believe all that red hair!! He looks just like you, Trey. Can't wait to meet him. Hopefully, we'll make it out sometime in May to hang out and play with him (is 6months a playing age?). Hang in there!
