an update...

devin is doing great! we went to his pediatritian yesterday and he said there really isnt anything to worry about. he most likey is getting over some sort of viral infection and thats what made the rash thing happen. he thinks it may be a tummy bug because devin has been vey fussy for a few feedings a day since monday. he usually drinks 4-5 oz. every three hours on the dot but he has only been wanting about every other feeding and just 2 ounces or so in between. of course because of his nicu days and how tiny he used to be i feel like i need to force him to eat every last drop of milk i can get into him but his dr. assured me that this is not necessary. so we are letting him eat what he wants for now. the dr. says he should be picking back up most of his feedings by monday and he doesnt even need to be seen again for the spots/rash unless different ones appear in a few weeks after he has recovered. he is still fine in every other way, happy and smiling as usual, so that makes me not as worried.

and the little chubmuffin weighs 14 lbs. 9 oz.!  that puts him in the 80th percentile for weight for his adjusted age! hes actually on the charts for his actual age too, hes in the 8.9th percentile!!! most premature babies, especially 26 weekers dont get on the charts for their actual age until around 2-3 years old! im so proud! go devin!

here's a little bonus picture. why is fraggle so large and in charge? you can barely tell hes a cat! each dog is 60+ pounds!


  1. Thats great about Devin!!! I was hoping he was going to be ok (and its good new to hear about the not having to force if he doesn't want it...wait till teething gah!)

    I can't believe how big he is, that is fantastic!!! I'm so happy for you!

  2. Your cat makes me so happy!
    I am glad Devin is doing better- he is so precious.
