I know that some of you are waiting to hear what is going on with little Garrison. I wish I knew...the doctors are trying desperately to figure out what is wrong with our little guy. They have ruled out TTN(don't even ask me what that stands for), a common illness with babies born via c-section. His white blood count was elevated today more than yesterday so they are concentrating more on an infection. He had a spinal tap today to check for many things including meningitis. It is absolutely heart wrenching to watch your baby go through all of this. I am trying to heal myself and rest but am finding it hard to do. I just want to be in the NICU with him at all times. His O2 levels are MUCH better when someone is holding him. I think Franklin will probably spend most of the night in the NICU with him. I will try to get some rest in my room, but will probably find myself down there checking on him.


Please keep our family in your prayers as this is a stressful time. I had such an uneventful pregnancy, and I really thought that we would just have the baby and go home. I am desperately wanting to breastfeed and I can't feed him right now. It is breaking my heart. I know that God knows best and that we will all pull through this. Thank you for the prayers on our behalf that you have already said.
