Every Tuesday while you're in the hospital, we'll take a picture with your pug so that everyone can see how much you are growing!
You are still a little bit bigger than 12 inches long, and you gained some weight this week and you are now a little bit more 1lb 13oz.
Your eighth week was even better than your seventh! You were taken off of any kind of breathing machine and you're now breathing completely on your own with a little bit of extra oxygen! And, you're eating more almost every day!
You mommy came down to see you several times, and, for the first time ever, on your eight week birthday, she was able to hold you! You also had another negative MRSA swab, which means you should be out of contact isolation by next week, which means your daddy can touch you again without gloves on!
In the next week, we're praying that you'll continue to do breathe well on your own, and that you'll gain some more weight. We're still praying that your mommy will get her new lungs soon, and that maybe we'll get to feed you with a bottle for the first time.
