Well here is an update for you guys. Thanks to everyone here and others that were asked, I was able to get just the exact amount needed to get my attorney hired ($2500 to be exact). So with that I want to send my deepest and sincerest thanks to all that helped. Still have a long road to go, but the attorney is the biggest hurdle.
Now for the updates. The Attorney when I first got there at 10am tuesday (yesterday) did NOT want to file for Emergency custody for me because none of the problems I told her about were big enough that she thought the judge would consider it an unsafe enviornment (most were smaller issues, but there were a LOT of small issues, but none were really big). But she did send in the petition for sole custody of my son for me with supervised visitations for the mother if the court deems necessary. NOW that being said, I left there to go be with my son, but I came back around 3pm (the attorney asked me to come back), and when I got there, she handed me papers as soon as I got in her door. Those papers just happened to be the arrest record of the mothers "father" as she claims him to be. Now before I started to read the records, she told me, that just because of THAT, she did a 180 and is filing the emergency custody petition. The man has a official history of violence and has felonies because of the fact, and i have the mother on video and voice recordings stating that she is going to leave my son alone with him when she starts working again, as well as saying that the nurses said that my son can't be around any type of smoking (even people who smoke and smell of smoke will irritate my son's lungs), and I have the mother saying that no matter what the doctors or nurses tell her, she is going to smoke no matter what. So she is intentionally endangering my son. So for that matter, that is why the petition is being filed.
Now, onto the updates with Micah. He is now 3lbs 15 oz, is completely off the tubes (including the tube feeding). He is eating anywhere from 30-45mls of food per feeding every 3 hours. He is attempting to be wheened off his isolette so he can go into a crib and seems to be on the borderline of being able to hold his own body temperature. But they doctors and nurses said if he did well on his wheening last night (haven't called yet to find out how he did), then he would be moved to a crib and would very well possibly be discharged on Tuesday next week. However with that, after his discharge he can't LEAVE the house for 6 weeks, or go into ANY crowds, as his whole immune system isn't fully developed. They are still talking of sending him home with a CPAP for the time being , but won't be sent home with a monitor, as he is doing well enough they feel he doesn't need one. He is a strong fighter and still loves to be around his dad more than his mom. The nurse told me right before I got there the mother told him I was coming and he just had the biggest smile on his face right after she said that, and had the same big smile (as the one in the update pictures) when I walked in and said, "Hi Micah!" Yes, he loves his daddy!
But there ya go, he could be coming home as early as Tuesday and if the petition goes through (which the attorney is positive it will as she knows the judge very well), the mother will have NO rights, and NO visitations, until an official custody hearing comes about (which I've already filed for sole custody as stated above and she has no knowledge of this, nor does she know that they have all the evidence I have given them, backed up by medical records, police records, public and private records, so basically she has no case what so ever).
That's the update as of right now... Any questions? lol

Sorry, just in, a quick update from my mom who called the NICU (I'm at work so i can't call).
Good update on micah. Now weighs 4lbs, been moved to a crib, eating well. They are getting things together to discharge him. Nurse Becky said it will take several days to do that. She heard 7 days, but dont write it in stone.
That's the latest!
