Well, Mr. Greyson is growing right along! I use to see an ornery little man, now I see an ornery little piglet! He even makes snorting sounds. Grey weighs 4 pounds 13 ounces- he is excelling in the weight department. Moreover, his feeding tube has been moved from his intestines to his belly and he is just doing great! Soon he will go from constant feeds to bolus feeds, which can be another challenge. However, we are simply delighted with his progress- I am so proud of him.

We had 2 showers this weekend, which were so much fun. Greyson has enough clothes to never wear the same thing twice- he will be a fashionable little piglet! Matthew and I are so fortunate to have such wonderful family, friends and co-workers. Everyone has been so supportive during this difficult journey. Unless you are a keeper of time, there isn’t much you can do in a situation like this. It is simply the task of waiting. My Aunt and I recently had a discussion of time and its ability to “heal wounds.” And this was our conclusion- In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, starts to cover the wounds with scar tissue and the pain lessens but the wounds are still present just not so deep. After having Greyson- I felt insane, literally, I thought I was losing my mind. I couldn’t remember anything and I concluded that I had broken synapses in my brain b/c my thoughts would simply drop off, now I realize this was my mind’s defensive mechanism. Numb all thoughts until she has the ability to find the strength to move beyond the pain. By the way- I’m not sure if I ever found the strength- it was given to me.

Okay, we are off to the hospital to see Grey Grey. I am going to tell him about all the wonderful gifts he received… and bring a few new books for story time.

*Matthew took the above picture on Friday evening and I just love it.

i had drinks last night with Sarah Gilliam and Karen Gobble and they told me all about your little fighter.

I am in awe of your strength- your little family is my thoughts.
