Little Samuel is doing great!! He gained 8 oz in two days. He's eating fine. He is going through some drug withdrawals (prescription meds). But they say he shouldnt need any interventions.
Just got word they are doing the carseat test today!! I almost cried. Im not kidding. I can not wait for him to come home and this ordeal to be over. Birth mother has already signed over her rights and here in 8 months or so the adoption will be finalized. Thanks for all the prayers ladies!!

Thanks. He was born 1 day shy of 37 weeks but they think he was only 35 weeks. He had some breathing difficulty and then they thought he had a problem with his intestines. (Maybe NEC) So they flew him to St.Louis. There, the doctors said they couldnt find anything wrong with his intestines!

So now he just has to grow and I guess pass the car seat test. He is my Bff's new little brother and is adopted.

I love CG!! :) They are awesome there. Children's is equally as awesome though. :) Cylus went to Children's when he got bit by a pitbull, but his ENT and orthopedic doc is at CG. :)

Bff's other brother went to CG for his cystic fibrosis. So they already knew all the staff.

yea we drive closer to STL to go to the pedi but without her we would have never found out that Cylus needed surgery to correct his obstructive sleep apnea.
