Well I came home yesterday....unfortunately without Ryder. He is being monitored for a few more days. He was having a little bit of trouble with acid reflux which was causing his heart rate to drop and making him stop breathing a little bit. They put him on medicine and he has been doing much better and is eating GREAT. He is also jaundice, they have him on the lights which makes me feel a little bit better not being able to be there 24/7. We really can only hold him during feedings, so we are heading down to the hospital as much as we can to hold him and feed him. If he continues to not have any more spells of not having to be stimulated to breathe he should be able to come home Friday or Saturday. It was really hard to not bring him home with us but as it turns out Sawyer has croup so it is probably best that we get him better so that Ryder can come to a safe and clean house. We really appreciate all the phone calls, emails, texts. We really feel loved by so many and really feel so blessed. So many people have offered to help and we just feel so grateful, we wish there was more to be done but really it is a waiting game and just hope it will all be over soon so we can all be under one roof together. Thanks again!!
