Baby Cole update

Baby Cole is still in the hospital...he's been at St. Louis Children's hospital for 42 days & we still don't know how much longer he'll be there.  His little body does not process sugars well.  They started him on a sugar-free formula awhile back & added a little more glucose each day, he tolerated it for awhile & then the major diarrhea came back.  Now even the Pedialyte causes him to have diarrhea.  They were supposed to start him on a new formula with fructose yesterday but Mama hasn't heard how well that worked.  If it doesn't work, then sometime next week they are going to do an endoscopy on him.  The GI doc said he may have a very rare genetic disease & won't be able to process ANY kind of sugar.  Not sure what happens if that's the case, he said we'd cross that bridge if we came to it.

With the TPN feeds, he's growing...as of Wed. he weighed 10 lbs 11 oz!  Mama & Auntie Lori snuck down to see him on Wed. & got to spend a little time loving on him.

Thank you for your purrs & purrayers, we ask that you keep them coming!  Here's some more pics of His Royal Cuteness...

Baby Cole!!

Grandma & Cole
 Mama & Auntie Lori had a good visit with Baby Cole...it was furry hard for them to leave him.  He is doing just awesome!  They are introducing simple carbs into his formula a little more efurry day, as long as he keeps it down & has no diarrhea.  Mama got to change a poopy diaper at 3:30 yesterday morning & was sooo happy it was "normal".  The GI doc asked her if she wanted to bronze it, she told him yep & that she would set it up where efurryone could see it!

Cole & Aunt Nonnie (Mama)

We did find out Sunday that he has RSV, a respiratory virus that can be furry dangerous for babies with compromised immune systems.  He's had to have his nose suctioned out but so far his lungs are clear.  We're just purrin & purrayin that he continues to do well.

Cole getting sleepy
They are still talkin about him bein on the TPN (nutritional feeds) for a few more weeks.  But as long as he gets well that's all that matters.

We wanna thank efurrybuddy again for all the purrs, purrayers & well wishes for our baby.  We think they've made a world of difference for him!

Sad, sad weekend

It's been an awfully sad weekend for all of us in the CB.  First, Dad Mark from Kattonic Cats crossed over the Bridge on Saturday & then we read that Scooby from Little Cat Feet crossed over on Sunday.  We have furry leaky eyes here.
Rest in Peace dear ones.
