look at that weight gain

I fully realize that my posts as of late are pretty factual and not so exciting, but I hope that life will get a little more stable, and I can get back to the fun stuff soon.

But tonight...

I'm tired. I've spent most of today doing laundry and packing, and I have much more packing to do tomorrow, so I'm heading to bed. Remember this? Yeah, it's like that.

Happy news:
- Between Thursday afternoon and this morning (4 1/2 days), Jonah gained 10 ounces.
- He ate 27 ounces today (really 31, but with another 4-5 ounce gusher).
- Kathryn kept Jonah so I could go get a haircut today. And I love it. Isn't it crazy how something as little as a haircut can give you such a boost?

I don't know how frequent my posts will be over the next few days, but I'll definitely try to get Jonah's nine month post up on Friday. In the meantime, I hope everybody has a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Hooray Jonah! I know you are so thankful for the continued good eating & weight gain! Doing something for yourself, no matter how small, always lifts your spirits. Can't wait to see your haircut! I hope you have a wonderful and peaceful Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to the Williams family! I'm glad for your happy news. Definitely something to be thankful for. And yes, a haircut can make a WORLD of difference in my outlook on life. I'm glad you were able to get pampered like that!

Yipppeee for sweet Jonut! I hope you are able to get all of your overwhelming packing done (it will be SO worth it I'm sure!) and have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving. We'll forgive you for not posting...really, we all should be too busy enjoying our families to read blogs anyways so don't feel bad if you can't post...you'll catch us up I'm sure. Glad you were able to sneak out for some much needed *ME* time. Take care and so thrilled that your beautiful boy is doing so well. As always, you'll all be in my prayers for safe travels and plentiful eating by the little man!

Congrats on the weight gain. I will keep praying. Enjoy your holiday and God bless.

So, so thankful that Jonah has been eating sooo well and gaining so much weight! I know you have to be so happy and relieved! Does it make you want to put the g-tube on hold to avoid the risk of a trach? I pray he continues to eat well and that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Joanie said...

Sorry, I somehow missed your "Appointment Update" post! Ignore my question in my previous post...you already wrote the answer! I hope things continue to go well and that the answer becomes clear as to whether or not to get the tube. :)

Rebecca said...

Yay for Jonah and for hair cuts too!

Have a happy happy Thanksgiving with lots of eating for everyone (especially Jonah!).

Libby said...

Hooray for haircuts! I got my first one in months last Friday, and even though they just trimmed an inch off, I went to Chapel Hill to go to the Aveda school because they wash your hair nicely and rub lotion on your face and make you feel like you're paying a lot more than you are. It's the little things that keep you sane!

Jonah, bulk up on mashed potatoes!

Sara said...

Jonah, You're a little show off ;) But show off all you want, 10 oz gained is awesome!
Hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving! And prayers that all will go well while away from home.

WOO HOO! That is something to be thankful for!! You will be in our prayers and praise this week as we get together with our family. I will continue to pray that Jonah doesn't cut out the eating during your vacation.

Way to go Jonah! That is great, buddy! Keep up the great work!

With that kind of weight gain I hope that you all can have a restful Thanksgiving and enjoy your time with family and friends. Take care and God bless.

Kim M said...

Jonah - you crack me up! Just when you get your mama and daddy in a tizzy over your eating, you eat like a champ and put on the weight! Way to go or is it "weigh" to go!
Have a great trip visiting family!
