Our Chunky Monkey!

I am happy to report that Little Lukey Poo is almost 3 pounds heavier.  Since having the G-J tube placed about 7 weeks ago,  he went from 13 lbs. to 15 lbs. 11oz.  He's actually got chunk and fat rolls on his legs!  Yippee for a chunky Lukey!

As I type this message, Luke is in the process of getting his new G-J feeding tube.  Instead of a Popsicle stick wrapped with surgical tape, he will have what is called a Mic-Key button.  The button is about the size of my thumb and won't have a long tube attached at all times.  This means the chances of accidentally pulling on the chord or having it come out are VERY slim. Yeah!

Thank you for all your prayers!  We pray that today's surgery is successful, without complications and that our big guy can come home this afternoon.  We pray that Luke continues to gain weight and that he grows developmentally!!  As Addie would say, "Dear God, let Luke's brain and body grow big and strong!!" 

Love to you all!
