A short update from today, April 24, '13:

Keegan just had his weight check 10 lbs 6 oz wearing only his g-button. His day time feedings are going up to 90 ml. We are getting another monitor download with results sometime next week.

Way to Grow, Keegan!

Hi there this is Keegan's Grammie. Sorry I haven' t posted in awhile. Keegan is doing great. He is almost 6 months old and weighs just over 11 pounds. He had his follow up visit at Children's Hospital today and he passed all the tests with flying colors. They found NO SIGN of any Genetic defects!!!!!!!
They also gave his parents the go ahead to talk with his pediatrician about starting bottle feedings. Thank you so much for your prayers <3 God is Good <3

Thanks Iris, as you know I was sort of internet incommunicado much of last week. Nice to have seen your father, even though the circumstances were not what one might wish for. (for the rest of the Prayer Warriors, I first visiting my Mom, which turned into laying her to rest. Keegan's great grandma rests in the same cemetery as my Mom. Mom got to meet her newest great grandchild, and only great grandson so far. He brightened her spirits on her last day down here with us. She lit up when he was brought into her room. (That was Saturday, before she passed early Tuesday morning, but he saw her again on Monday, less than 12 hours from her passing. The last picture I took of her, she was touching his face.) Heres the lastest Keegan Update, which says pretty the same as Lady Iris' post.

Well after seeing doctor after doctor telling us he is a perfectly healthy 11lb 4oz boy, the genetics doctor was the last to see us at the clinic. She said after looking at the MRI they did shortly before he left the hospital that he doesn't have lymphoma and she believes his hydrocephalus was caused by being premature not some genetic disease. And the best news? It was all done by noon not 4pm like they were telling us to expect.

here's his buddy", Oscar, who is my grandson. :)

BTW, there was a correction, she didn’t mean “lymphoma”, she meant “smooth brain” the word for which is similar. :)

It was so great to talk with Keegan’s great grandpa about what a miracle he is.

A couple of Keegan pictures for all who prayed so hard for him.

Plus, for good measure, an Oscar picture too, taken yesterday, June 2nd. Not long after I left his city, Austin, for Dallas.

But grandpa didn't get to hold him this trip. His time was monopolized by his girl 3rd cousins, 13 and 14. Almost couldn't get him to let go of the 14 y/old's hair.

Keegan, while doing very well, isn't completely out of the woods yet. The follosing is a couple of weeks old, I've been slacking.

"Soooo frustrating. Seems every time we start to think Keegan is fairly normal, we get a friendly reminder from his monitor alarm that he isn't quite there yet. Had 3-4 so far tonight but, thankfully, he kept pulling his heart rate back up without Liz having to do anything more than shake him a little. I see a return of his caffeine in our future."

The watch continues. Keep up the Good Work.

Latest Keegan Picture.

Apparently he is doing OT (therapy) in the pool. He was due for a download of his heart/breathing monitor last week. No information on that yet.

Oscar does OT as well, for a little problem with an asymmetric muscle development. He's doing well. He enjoyed his more than a week of camping up in Montana with his parents. Yep, he slept in a tent. Here he is in the tent.

He gets his pool time now and again too.

The Keegan picture was posted specifically for one of his NICU nurses, who had apparently given him a similar premie sized outfit. She later posted:

“Love me a man in argyle!!
He looks so good!!!”

Keegan is off his apena and heart monitors!

As of July 26th.

Here's the big boy himself:

In other news, Keegan will become a big brother in March. They are referring to the new one as Minion, as in Keegan's Minion. :)

And of course no post to Keegan's thread would be complete without a recent Oscar picture too. Recent as in taken this morning when he was out to breakfast with his parents.

Oh my gosh! Keegan is such a handsome lad and doing so well. Prayers continue of course. And to be a big brother in March. How great it is! Congrats to the mom and dad.

And sweet Oscar! Looking good there kiddo. Love his quilt too.

Heart lifting to watch these youngsters grow. Thanks so much El Gato.

Oscar is the most smiley 6 month old I've ever seen. Great big smiles at the littlest things. Like laying on his Daddy.

The quilt came, I think, from Abuela La Gata. But it could have been an Aunt or and Auntie. Lots of quilters around. I lose track. Even if it is from Abuela, or Tia the actually quilting part could have been done by Auntie Maggie, who has a giant quilting machine in her sewing room. A room that's the size of a double garage, since it was built over theirs. Although for a smaller one, the machines at our place are fine.

Latest info/statement from Keegan's mom.

_____

My poor baby.... being normal and breaking teeth in on the bottom.

______

So even though his gestational age is little less Oscar's, Keegan seems to be ahead in the teething department.. which my daughter is just fine with. (Oscar gets the Good Stuff, direct from Mommy.. well from Mommy anyway, when she's working he gets the good stuff, still the Real Deal, from a bottle while snuggling with Daddy)

Sewing room...a whole room just for sewing? Ahh the good life.

At our house, Oscar's grandma has two. One what is supposed to be the "formal" living room, the other the formal dining room. They are adjacent, and could be considered one big room I suppose, but there is an archway between them.

There is a cutting table, a sewing machine cabinet, with machine. A serger, and another machine that is used for quilting, but can do other things too. A couple of machines that I'm somewhat unsure of their function. One is a die cutter I guess, there is pressing thing too, a smaller version of what laundries use to press pants and such. She who dies with the most fabric wins. And "you can tell the women from the girls by the cost of their toys". Ok it doesn't rhyme as it does with men, boys, toys, but it still applies. Those machines make my guns look cheap. But they are a lot more productive too. They've made prom dresses, bridesmaids dresses, and lots of clothes for daughters, nieces, great nieces and granddaughters, in addition to quilts for the same, plus nephews.. and one husband. The oldest one made her wedding dress. Her grandma taught her to sew, and she learned well. Grandma would be proud, and was while she was alive. She honors her Grandma every time she makes something. She's passing on the tradition to her granddaughters, and a great niece too. So I don't have a problem with any of that.

Latest Keegan Pic.

And message from his Mommy (I think)

Keegan's still wanting to sit up although not very good at it, and there is a tooth or two wanting to poke through in his mouth. Last time we checked he is up to around 13lbs and pretty much normal developmentally. Still working on the eating though. Minion gets an ultrasound on the 21st might post pics or just let the suspense build

So there may soon be a sonogram of Keegans up coming sibling.

Oscar's been wearing his Mom's and Aunt's college "colors".
