Laying Low....

Its been awhile since I posted (sorry!) so I thought I'd give a quick update. Since last monday we've pretty much been laying low, staying close to home and trying to enjoy the rest of the summer! After only 4 days with Teagan's NG tube back in she weighed 11lbs 1/2 oz last Thursday! She gained 3 1/2 ounces in 4 days! A nurse from a group called "Heart Links" is coming to the house tommorrow to check her SATs and weight. I'm told that she can also help me with her NG tube placement, or any other health needs Teagan might have. If all goes well, I think she'll be able to come once a week! Teagan has an appt. with the cardiologist on wed. and I'm hoping for some information or a 'plan' for the upcoming cath/Glenn surgery.

Trent's mom came down Friday and took Gavin back home with her for the week. Its hard being away from him, but I'm loving the break and he's having a great time! I've been spending alot more quiet time with Teagan just holding her and napping together. She's becoming quite the talker, and her head control is getting much better too!

She is so pretty! And the feeding tube looks great, keeping her healthy! 3 1/2 ounces is awesome!! We are looking forward to a play date with Gavin this week. Enjoy your time with Teagan and try to rest.
love and hugs,
