The nurse just came and took Jonah's weight.

After a month of not gaining even one ounce, Jonah weighed in today at:

18 pounds and 3 ounces

That's an EIGHT ounce gain from last week!!!

Praise God!

yayyyy for the weight increase!!!! That's what usually happens... if you're trying to gain weight, it'll be on a plateau for a while then all the sudden show up... or if you're trying to lose weight, that same thing happens often too!

so happy he gained tho :) :) :)

Awesome! God answers prayers! He is so faithful in meeting our needs, and showing us just how much He cares. Even if we don't always see it immediately, He is always at work. Congratulations, Jonah! And congratulations to you, Patrice, for all of your hard work in getting him to eat even when it is beyond frustrating!

Tricia said...

WOWZERS!!! That is SO great...I remember my kids going through plateaus w/ their weight gain. My daughter was a preemie and I was always concerned w/ her weight gain. It was never as serious of an issue as you have w/ sweet Jonah but still worrisome. I hope that this takes a little stress off of you! You are doing a great job--I will keep praying for you and Matt for wisdom as you care for Jonah. And, I will keep praying for healing for him! Praise God for the good report!

Jonah I can almost see your smiling face when the nurse weighed you and announced that you had gained...you are such a smart boy to really keep those "big people" on their toes & to keep you mom's heart jumping.

How AWESOME..our GOD is an AWESOME God & he showers us with His blessings.

Prayers continue to go up for you & your family. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK...give mom a break :-)

Almost forgot, how was the itching & nose bleeding this morning after taking that med?

Love & kisses

Oh wow! So excited for you!!! My sons do not have EB, but both both had/have weight/growth issues. My older son (now 5) was on Periactin for about 9 months. It was a miracle for us and our last hope. He was way below the charts and with the help of Periactin he went up to the 50%. For him (of course no EB mind you) we saw no side effects at all - which made it even more of a miracle for us. Good luck to you and precious Jonah. I think about you often and pray for you.
