Title: In the Hospital(AGAIN)
Post by: James Brown Jr, on June 08, 2008, 12:10:47 PM
well as most of you know my youngest son who was born March 6th was in Helen DeVos Childrens Hospital in Grand Rapids due to weight problems in Mid March(13-26th)
well we are back in the hospital again. we've actually been in the hospital for a while i've just been too busy to post a topic about it. well we've been down in Grand rapids since the 7th of May. and the still don't have much of a clue of whats wrong with him. Caemon is 3 months old now and only weight 5lbs. 7 oz. which is horrible considering he was born at 4lbs. 11 oz. i've made the desicion to move the family down here to Grand Rapids. once Caemon is doing better me and Rockie are going back up to Ludington, Fixing her Pontiac(Head Gasket), Fixing the Fury(No Spark) and moving. please keep my son and our family in your prayers.

well we are home right now. and he is gaining weight. he now weighs 6lbs. 4oz. while i'mm off work(due to not having a car), i'll be fixing the Pontiac and the Fury. they have Caemon on formula thats !!(40$$$$)!! a can and a can last us almost a week. they also have him on a load of other things to help. soo far they think that he's got a pancreatic deficency that causes him to not be able to break down food properly.

well he has a special needs insurance coverage thru the State of Mi. so they cover most of his medical supplies, including his feeding tube and the feeding pump.

Just what Ar said!  I'm happy that your little one is doing better! 
 
When is comes to weight gain I know ALL the tricks, too.  As of today I officially outweigh Siss by 125-pounds!  I've been crushing chairs left and right around the house.  I accidentally sat on Shemp the other day and my Aussie turned into a Newfoundland in square footage!  Poor Shemp...
 
Seriously...  We're praying for you and yours.  Keep the encouraging news coming James and Happy Father's Day to you!
