Photo shoot with the boys!

Today was a great day! It was the first day that the home nurse came out and they approved Riley for 40 hrs a week, so the nurse will be out monday thru friday from 7 to 5. It went good today with Riley. At first Riley was fussy with the nurse because he didn't know her but after a few hours he was okay with her.

Then later on we went and had a photo shoot of the boys done together. It went really good. Riley smiled with his brother.

Great day!

From his hospital stay
Riley had a great day. Loving my life with my two amazing children in the world that God has given to me and I wouldn't trade it in the world.
Riley has smiled all day and just been very happy. I haven't seen that in a while so it was great to see it again! 
Much happier!

Riley was in the hospital again on Monday and got out on Wednesday. He was put in the hospital because he was losing weight and not gaining. 

He is doing better and has gained some weight. They said that he has to be on demand everyday which means that instead of being fed for 4hrs and off 2 hrs, the only way to keep his weight on him is to constantly feed him.

Yesterday he went to his doctor's appointment and well, we got good and bad news. The good news is that he is gaining weight really well but the bad news is that his liver and spleen are even more bigger than they were before.

We will continue to keep you updated. Please keep Riley in your thoughts and prayers.

Riley's 1st blog update!

Riley will be 11 months old in just a few days! He has his ups and downs and lately has been fighting a virus. He also had a G-Tube put in to help him gain weight and protect him from aspirating.

Just before he got his G-Tube

Riley can still hold his head up and roll from side to side. He loves to be around his family, to have his picture taken and his big blue eyes light up whenever he sees a dog! :-) He has a very high spirit and everyone can't help but fall in love with him.

Hanging out

Riley and his older brother Chris have a special bond and love being together. 

Brotherly Love
Riley has an elephant blankie that he can't go anywhere without! He also loves his stuffed animals, bath time in his duckie tub, and his bouncy seat! 

Elephant Blankie!

Our days are crazy but we may be getting some help at home soon with a home health nurse. We are thankful for each day that we have together as a family. Thank you for checking out Faith and Riley's blog!
