Quick update on baby Canon!

    Canon is doing much better.  His apnea is getting better each day.  He is now tolerating his feedings and has not stopped breathing or turned blue in days.  The apnea monitor did go off the night before last but I am pretty sure it was a false alarm.  The only thing we are having trouble with now is his little tummy.  It seems to hurt all the time and I am not really sure what to do. Hopefully his Dr. will be able to help me figure out some options.  He still takes caffeine each day and will be on it and the apnea monitor for at least another month or two.  Canon is a great baby and doesn't give me any trouble until 9:00 each night.  He thinks it is time to be awake from then until at least 2:00 a.m. We have tried our best to keep him up during the day but nothing seems to work ( not even rubbing his little head or arms with a cold wash cloth will wake him up).  He is such a blessing to us and we are growing to love him more and more each day.  Thanks for all of the continued prayers.  I'll try to do better at keeping the updates coming but the time seems to pass so quickly each day that I don't want to miss a minute with Canon.


  1. What a sweetie! Have you tried giving him some Gripe water for his tummy? It helps Aiden when his is upset. I'm glad to hear he is doing well except for the being up at night. That's rough, but it will get better the older he gets. I just love all of his hair! It looks so soft!

  2. We just started trying the gripe water this week. We usually just used another type of medicine but it doesn't seem to help. Thanks so much! we love his hair too! We can't believe how blonde it is because his dad's hair is so dark!
