More on Reid

I went and visited Amanda and Reid the other day and was able to get a few pictures. Here he is with his eyes open, but he just finished eating so he has that 'drunk baby' look : ) Reid is now over 4 lbs and is sleeping in a bassinet and no longer the isolette. The one problem that has come up is that the rescan of Reid's brain shown that the blood/bruising from a month ago had reabsorbed but in its place is now a cyst. The doctor is a little concerned and they will do an MRI before Reid goes home. At this point they can't tell what this cyst is affecting (motor planning, speech, etc) but from all checks Reid is doing well, so...
As far as getting to go home, Reid has to take all food from a bottle or nursing (he started nursing for the first time on Wednesday) in a 24-48 hour period with no help from the feeding tube in his nose. He's not there yet, but he's close.
Please continue to keep them in your prayers as Reid continues to grow and develop and making the transition home.
