Not much happened today.  Hopefully, Keegan will get most of his cardiac testing out of the way tomorrow.  We have a plan set in place for advancement of his feeds and getting him off of TPN.  Today was the first day we felt everyone was on the same page for that, which was helpful.  Of course, the best laid plans are always dependent on how Keegan's body tolerates everything.  Only time will tell that.

He is still putting up a huge battle each time we try to get him out of bed.  Once we got him going though, he did walk quite a bit.  His little friend, Brady, came to visit him today and convinced him to go downstairs to see the "choo choos."  I think it did his little body a lot of good and helped him feel a bit more normal.

Ms. Stephanie and Audrey...think she's ready for Christmas?

I love this picture because you can see how excited Brady would get when a train came by!

I have a lot more on my mind I feel like I need to get out the last few days, but I just can't seem to get my thoughts organized lately.  One day soon.  For now, I'm just happy to be able to post pictures of Keegan starting to feel better and with news of possibly going home soon.  I wish I knew a better way to say thank you to each of you for your prayers and support.  It just baffles me how many people are out there loving on my little boy.  If you don't mind, I'd like to ask you to pray for two very special little ones tonight.  Our friend, Jameson, who had a bone marrow transplant this fall has been fighting the back and forth in the hospital for the last 100 days.  He is having trouble tolerating his feeds and suffered almost every complication in the book it seems.  Little Miss Avery has been in the hospital since before Thanksgiving with a mysterious bone infection.  Yesterday, she endured yet another surgery looking for a source and has been enduring an enormous amount of pain in her little body.  Please include these two little warriors in your prayers.  They are both in desperate need of the healing and relief, as are their precious families.  Thank you so much for lifting them up as well.  More tomorrow.
