Sleeping on his tummy

Eric is still doing really well. There isn't a whole lot of new info. He is still on his vent. Eric had lost a little weight but has been gaining an ounce a day for the last three days so he is back up to 2 lbs. 3 oz. I got to hold him the last 2 nights and it was wonderful. He loves it when we read to him. He calms right down. I can't believe it has already been more than 3 weeks since his early arrival.

Pray for us that Hurricane Hanna stays away. It is supposed to hit the entire Savannah, Beaufort, Charleston area this Friday. If it looks like it will hit Charleston hard they will evacuate Eric to another hospital in either Greenville or Columbia. If it looks bad, but not bad enough to evacuate they will transfer Eric down to the 4th floor to an area with no windows. Ronald McDonald house, where we are staying in Charleston, will close down completely even if it is a voluntary evacuation. So we will either see if they transport Eric and go where he goes or just come home. Nothing like a little stress added on stress!!
