More good updates today:

G-Button surgery went well, they are planning on starting to use it tomorrow. So now we hope he heals well from that, and that he can lose the "whiff" of O2 now that his nose will be clear.

Oh, and just throwing it out there in case we weren't clear before: G-Button is NOT permanent, and we will continue to bottle feed him as much as he allows even with the button in place. Hopefully he will pick up on bottle feeding and can get the button removed in a few weeks/months. If not it is still entirely possible that he will eat solid foods normally and we could remove it then.

Funny you should say that. :)

Got another update this morning, from Keegan's Mom,as most of them have been.

Let's see... Keegan has been off oxygen as of 330 am and has as of yet to get his feedings restarted. At 9 o'clock "cares" found out he is getting on a 4 hour schedule and that Wednesday or Thursday they are gonna do monitor training with me and then room in soon there after. If all goes to plan keegan could be busting out in a wk or so.

I missed the earlier update, so was delighted to see this today. I’ve had Baby Keegan in my nightly prayers since last Nov. and am delighted to hear of his progress——and to put a sweet face to his name. Thank you so much! Prayers continue.

WOW, and pretty close to his original due date What a long haul for the family, but baby’s going home. What a happy homecoming this will be.

God bless each and every person involved in Keegan’s care and, of course, thanks to the Lord for his life.

Keegan’s Latest Adventures
It only took 3 month and 5 days but this NICU graduate is finally going home

Yea Keegan!

But look at it this way, if he'd been born on his due date, he wouldn't have been home for almost a week yet.

My grandson, Oscar James, was home 13 days before his due date. But he sort of cheated by being born at home. He's doing well, and took a little nap on his maternal grandma last evening.

Before I even finished posting, permission was given.

I give you Grammie Iris and Keegan:

If I can get permission, from her, I'll post a picture of Grammie Iris holding a sleeping Keegan.

O.James is still an ounce or two lighter than K. James.

Before I could finish posting, Iris said it was OK to post.

I give you Grammie Iris and Keegan.

I did it again. Forgot to add the list. Y'all need to see the result of all your prayers.

See post 376

To make up for forgetting again, I'll post another picture.

Might have been on her lap. I haven't seen a picture yet, I just got a text about 11:45 last night, which I didn't see until this morning. :) But the joy came right through in the text message wording. :) (We live several hours from our daughters and grandkids, but Grandma is taking advantage of having to travel to their city for a work related meeting on Monday. She does that a lot, gets her travel costs paid and visits her grandkids all in one trip, less the cost of extra nights of course)

What a wonderful thing wherever he’s napping. Nice work out that gramma can travel for business and squeeze fun in to boot.

It's magnificent indeed.

It's a also a genuine miracle.

Yet I'm somehow not surprised at how it's all gone down. Somehow I was confident things would be pretty much OK. Sure he's got issues, but he's home with his Mama, and his grandma(s) can easily visit and spoil him now.

So, 7lbs 11oz 19 inches long. Not bad for someone due today. Happy Due date Keegan.

Bigger than Oscar, who was due last Thursday. Oscar got to go out to the Farmer's Market on Sunday.

Ooooohhhh, I want to play with his wittle ittle toes! Please... just for a minute and I promise that I’ll hand him back. Is that Pop-Pop? If so.... in previous pictures... looks like Keegan James looks like Pop-Pop. (sorry Iris... he looks like Pop-Pop... maybe the next grandbaby will look like you!)
