This is the amazing story of our micro preemie, John Craig. He was born on November 30, 2005 at 24 weeks and 5 days gestation. He weighed 1 pound 8 ounces and was 12 inches long. John is a true miracle and an inspiration to all that meet him!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.

All I want for Christmas...

...is John's 2 front teeth! Poor little man.......BOTH of his top two teeth are coming in at once. His little gums are so swollen.

So, at Speech today I asked if she thought John would ever be able to eat (someone kids never do and are tube feed their entire life) and she was pretty hopeful that he would. Yeah!!!!!!!!

Jamie and I have decided that we will not being taking John back to the neurologist. I spoke with his ST and his PT about it and they too agreed that we are doing everything we need to do to help him succeed. We aren't going to change anything we are doing and he is getting all the help he needs. There isn't anything the neurologist can tell us that we don't already know.......well, I take that back...who knows what she'll tell us next time. He hasn't had anymore head ultra sounds or MRI's so all of the info. she is going off of is from the NICU days. Anyhow, if he starts regressing then we'll take him back.........but not to her!
