MORE Good News:
So I suppose I should update from our visit yesterday/today. Not much to say really. Tried breastfeeding yesterday and he did better than expected. He's been having more breathing alarms lately but found out that was because he was doing so good they tried taking him off his caffeine and that is out of his system now, so they turning it back on. Oh, and the nurse today mentioned that his weekly head ultrasounds are starting to show creases in his brain, which is a very good sign. Still not "normal" but definitely a lot better than they originally thought.
Both the breastfeeding progress and the creases are tremendous news!
“Both the breastfeeding progress and the creases are tremendous news!”
Yes,they are! Keep up the good work, Keegan.
Yeah for this good news update. Thanks El Gato and prayers continue of course.
Keegan’s Latest Adventures
Let’s see... he’s over 6 lbs. His eye exam Monday was good. Liz talked to every specialist in the book to help with feeding, basically he has to take all his 50ml feedings by bottle or breast for 24hrs before going home, so far he’s done 15ml by bottle. Oh, and he is having “surgery” to get his tongue clipped tomorrow morning, since he is tongue-tied and they think that might help with the feeding. And before we left, we talked to the case manager and started the long process of pamphlet reading and learning how to take care of him at home.
