Mauricio and I are home from the hospital and trying to find the energy to
tackle some insurance paperwork before we get to sleep. Thankfully
though, we can rest a bit easier tonight after receiving this news earlier this
According to the doctor, RJ's head ultrasound showed no change in the bleeds compared to the last scan performed a couple days ago. Of course, we would prefer that there were no bleeds to begin with, or that the bleeding in his brain had miraculously disappeared. But, for now, knowing that the bleeds have not worsened gives us hope that our little guy has a fighting chance. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to all of those praying for us! It seems to be working, so keep doing what you're doing.

While you're at it, please pray for Mauricio as well. The stress of the last two weeks has taken a toll on his body and he's developed a pesky cold. Obviously this wouldn't normally be a big deal, but today it prevented him from visiting RJ - since our little man is so fragile, any illness or infection could be life threatening. We didn't want to risk passing anything to him, so Mo waited in the waiting room all day while I sat with our son. Hoping to wake up with a healthy husband tomorrow morning!
Good night everyone. And to baby Luke - I'll be dreaming of you.

Mauricio and Kelly, I hope you know that I'm praying not only for RJ, but also for both of you. I will be out in California next Wednesday, and I hope I can see you guys, even for a few minutes at the hospital. Mauricio I know that you told me not to go out to California, but I really want to see mom and dad, before I start my job. I love you guys.
