Jonah is holding his own

Patrice has been posting regular updates about Jonah, and I'm going to do only the minimum here, since I know most of you are happy to just get it from the horse's mouth. But when Big Things happen, I'll probably mention them to you.

Like overnight last night, Jonah took 4ccs of breastmilk! Patrice called to check on him in the middle of the night, and she got the happy news. This morning when she and Matt arrived to see him, they WERE a little surprised to see that he was getting a TP tube, which runs through his nose, down his esophagus, through his stomach, to his intestine. It will help him get the nourishment he needs, will be able to heal and resist infection better, and he can still bottle feed. And, if he starts really picking up with the bottle feeding, they'll take the tube out.

You can read more and see adorable pictures here, if you'd like. Thanks for praying!
