Liam isn't being swaddled anymore- he is burning too many calories trying to stay warm so he is back to his climate controlled bed. Babies can't keep thier own heat until they are 4 lbs. He had to get a blood transfusion last night because he was very anemic. He sats well on room air but will dip down constantly so they cheked his lungs and did a check of his blood yesterday to look for infection. His lungs looked good! And no signs of infection- they think it's just the anemia. The Dr. is back on today so I am anxious to see what he says. But we are praising the Lord that Liams lungs loked so much better than before!! I will try to update later if I know anything new.

We continue to pray for little Liam and your family! I hope the CPAP goes well and that he can be weaned off of it soon as well...sounds good about the feedings - that he is tolerating them well. We are constantly thinking of you guys!

Ephesians 5:19 ~ Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord,

What wonderful news that Liam's lungs are looking better than before. Great is the Lord and worthy of glory and praise! Thank you for keeping us updated on Liam.
Lord God you are great and worthy of praise! We lift our voices and prayers to you for Liam and the
McIntosh family. May your abounding love and faithfulness be ever upon them Lord. Continue to strengthen Liam's lungs. Allow his body to grow big and strong; let his body be replenished and nourished by his feedings. In Christ's name we pray this, Amen!
