Feb. 22 - Updates on Colton and Wendy

Colton moving his right arm which is healing nicely - or giving me the universal "talk to the hand" gesture

Mimsi holding Colton for the first time

Sydney, Mimsi (Kay - my mom), and I went to visit Wendy and Colton at the hospital. Wendy is hanging out with IV antibiotics and having her wounded tended periodically. We'll find out moreon the cultures tomorrow but she is not running any fever and her white blood cell count is normal. So we are hopeful that we'll get this issue nipped in the bud and get Wendy back on her feet soon.

Colton continues to thrive and his feeding are now up to 28ml per feeding. All his plumbing is still in good working order and he is properly holding his temperature. Mimsi got to hold her grandson for the first time as well. Last time Mimsi visited with Colton, he was still in Level III with a breathing tube. He's made tremendous progress since day one and I continue to be amazed at how well he has faced down and overcome many of his challenges. As crazy as life has been lately and with all the challenges thrown at us, we are strong because of our Faith and the love and support we have from all of you. I've always believed God won't throw more at you than you can handle but I must admit I look up from time to time and ask - "Just how tough do you think we are!?".

All the best to you and your family...Love, Bret, Wendy, Sydney and Colton
