Morning update :)

Coop was on pedialite all night because the nutrition room was locked so the nurses didn’t have access to his formula. I think he liked the pedialite. He slept great! He woke up this morning and has been a little agitated since 8 and they have restarted his formula. The resident would like keep the same rate of formula and see if he has any trouble today. Nothing else to report.

Hooray for a good night's rest! Thanks for sharing your love for Charlie in literal words. It is always obvious how much you love him, but reading it just brings tears to my eyes. You are an amazing woman and mother, thanks for sharing your strength. Much love and prayers and here's to a good day.

Just wondering if Charlie is on special formula or is it the same formula he was on before he got sick? I never thought about that until you said he done good with the pedialite. Here's wishing you a very good day.

He was on his regular formula when he had the NJ tube but about a week ago they changed it to a partially digested formula to decrease gastric upset. H has a higher caloric value in his formula so he doesn't have to get as much volume.

I am glad we got to meet today in the play room at PCMC. Your little boy is so cute and you guys have been through a lot, but I can tell by talking to you that you are strong and you have an angel in your family. Our prayers will be with you every day. By the way we will be here for one more day we are getting a PIC line put in tomorrow for IV antibiotics.

We also got to meet the BYU Football team for Thursday's Hero's! It was great. Coach Mendenhall gave Kayden his baseball hat right off of his head. Everyone was shocked that he would give it away. Kayden will let you know who gave him that hat. He didn't take it off the whole night after Coach gave it to him. I agree with you BYU is awesome and they truly are very genuine and they have a very strong spirit. I am sure Cooper has that same spirit and he too will be a fighter in whatever the Lord has in store for him in the future.

I will keep in touch with you.

Hi my name is Myndi. I have no idea how I found this blog but I did. I honestly think heavenly father had some part in it. Anyways I have read about your dear sweet charlie and have fallen in love with him. I have a 7 month old little girl and can't imagine what you guys must be going through. I really feel inspired to help out any way I can. I noticed you have a little boy Britton and wanted to also give him something special. I am currently working with Toys R Us to see if they will help out but if not I still want to give your little Britton a fun shopping day at Toys R Us with you. I don't konw if there is any other way I can help your wonderful family but if there is please let me know. You are an amazing family with faith so stong you could move mountains. I am praying for your little cooper as well as your family. Please let me know how I can help. My email is mynanders@hotmail.com or you could leave a message on my blog.
