Beckham Cooper

Beckham was born on May 21st, eleven weeks early, weighing 2 pounds, 7 ounces. He remains in NICU. Today he is four pounds, but still has a long way to go. He has been having trouble digesting, and still needs assistance to breathe. His mother, Rachel, would appreciate your prayers.

6/26/09 UPDATE:
-He's been doing really well with his breathing and his doctors are going to try and wean him off of his oxygen support within the next few days.
-He's learning to regulate his temperautre and *hopefully* being moved to an open crib, rather than an isolette, within the next 24 hours.
-His feedings are increasing but he still needs IV fluids, as he isn't recieving full feedings of milk yet.

He came home July 15th and as of last Friday (the 31st) he was weighing 6 pounds 13 ounces, healthy newborn weight. We are so so happy to have him safely at home with us. He did come home on oxygen so we do ask that you'll pray about that. Just that his lungs will continue to develop and become stronger so oxygen isn't needed (it makes traveling with him VERY difficult and time consuming). Other than that, he is doing wonderfully and acting like a "regular" baby. We are so blessed! Thank you for all of the prayers!! We so appreciate it!!
