Yep. Thank you Mom. Got a text today from my daughter with a short video. Poor little guy had the hiccups. But he's looking good. Has his eyes open more of the time than earlier. They have been letting him lay in the sun (through the window), sans clothes, to prevent jaundice. We did the same with her when she was a newborn, but she had actually was a little jaundiced.

He is up to 7lbs 2oz.

The exact same as my grandson Oscar James' birth weight. Well it was several hours after he was born that the nurse midwives got around to weighing him... with a fish scale and a sling. They do things a bit differently for home births. :)

I'll post the most recent updates, since you summarized.

From Monday, 18 Feb. :

Last we checked he was 6lbs 12oz still bouNcing betweeN 12.5 aNd 25% O2 and arouNd 10-20ml wheN he takes a bottle. They giving him a few more days to progress oN feeding otherwise its lookiNg pretty likely he will get a gbutton. Getting aNother head ultrasound today to check how hiS shunt is doing

And then from today, 21 Feb:

So just got off the phone with Coventry and not only did the UNMC case manager pull some strings and get him a pediatrician instead of a family practitioner, she got him the exact same pediatrician his cousins go to.

All I have to say is:

GO KEEGAN GO!

GROW KEEGAN GROW!

Although he seems be doing pretty well on the growing. What a tough little guy!

I just had a thought too. Maybe Keegan James and Oscar James can meet someday. Wouldn't be too surprising. Oscar's folks like to travel, and two of his Great Grandmas do live in the same state as Keegan, with my Mom being in the same city.

Oops, I missed an update, from Wed, Feb 20, it was pretty much identical to what LadyIris58 wrote. But I also missed adding addressees: So see post 339 and Post 344

A video even! Love this technology. Sunlight is great to handle that yellowish hue. Glad all are doing so well.

Conratulations!!! So happy for you, and it sounds like our other baby is coming along; the G tube is a good thing if it gets him home sooner.

More good updates today:

G-Button surgery went well, they are planning on starting to use it tomorrow. So now we hope he heals well from that, and that he can lose the "whiff" of O2 now that his nose will be clear.

Oh, and just throwing it out there in case we weren't clear before: G-Button is NOT permanent, and we will continue to bottle feed him as much as he allows even with the button in place. Hopefully he will pick up on bottle feeding and can get the button removed in a few weeks/months. If not it is still entirely possible that he will eat solid foods normally and we could remove it then.

Funny you should say that. :)

Got another update this morning, from Keegan's Mom,as most of them have been.

Let's see... Keegan has been off oxygen as of 330 am and has as of yet to get his feedings restarted. At 9 o'clock "cares" found out he is getting on a 4 hour schedule and that Wednesday or Thursday they are gonna do monitor training with me and then room in soon there after. If all goes to plan keegan could be busting out in a wk or so.

I missed the earlier update, so was delighted to see this today. I’ve had Baby Keegan in my nightly prayers since last Nov. and am delighted to hear of his progress——and to put a sweet face to his name. Thank you so much! Prayers continue.
