This will be really short and sweet as I'm walking out the door to go to the hospital. The doctors assured me yesterday that I would be here for the March of Dimes walk on April 19th, in fact, they assured me that I'll be here at least another month? Oh Well, at least I know what to expect. I think God could get Ned moving quicker if He wanted to....we'll see.
Not much change yesterday. Ned didn't gain any weight, but considering they had given him extra doses of a diuretic to dry out any potential fluid on his lungs (a concern with the temperature he was running), they said it was good that he didn't loose any weight. They weighed him again last night so I'm anxious to see how yesterday did for him.
They continue to increase his feeds every 3 hours by the feeding tube. He should be up to 32 mL's as of this morning at 8am. They have him at a goal of 65mL's so we're about a week away for hitting that mark at our current increase rate. He has tolerated the increases well and I'm so thankful he hasn't experienced any serious reflux issues. The occupation therapist didn't come by yesterday...I'm going to push for that a little more today. Our doctors put in the order, so I'm not sure where she was?
That's the highlights. I'll post more details tonight. Lots of love!
