BabyBoy's Second Week in the Hospital - Friday

July 6, 2007 - Friday

Morning nurse: Margaret (different than other Margaret). Evening nurse: Gladys.
Margaret said that he is such a sweet and easy baby! He had a great night at his 15 ccs. The neonatologist, Dr. Hillard, came by while we were with him around 11 am. She listened to his belly and said that he was doing great. We asked that since he was doing so well, we were told that he may be able to be increased by 5 ccs twice a day and she said...yeah that sounds fine. So she wrote the order to raise him to 20 ccs for the 2pm feeding and up by 5 ccs every 12 hours! :) This early evening he had a little spit up, so the nurse said we'll see how he does the next two feedings and then if all goes well, we'll raise him to the 25 ccs at 2am.

Just keep praying that his intestines keep working so well. Dr. Hillard said that sometimes with rapid increased feeds there can be stalls, so we pray that he just keeps on going and gets to come home soon!

Sounds like good progress! So glad he's doing well. He's a Feisty Felts! Of course he would.
