Food Updates

Just want to share that the doctors have decided Trey is doing well enough to increase his feedings. He eats every three hours - my breast milk in a tiny bottle. He started with 3ml every three hours. Then it was up to 5ml. This a.m. it was increased to 6ml, and now it's even more! We are to add another 3mls every 6 hours - a pretty quick increase I think. That's a great sign. They are happy with him. So far he's digesting perfectly. So we will see.

 
Today he burped a few times. He sneezed. He pooped. He even did the quintessential, pee while mom's changing his diaper - he peed 3 times while I was trying to change him! So we used up 4 diapers in like one minute. It was such a normal parenting experience, though I was leaning over a plastic "Cadillac expensive" incubator while changing him. It was a cool thing for me. It's been a REALLY LONG time since I got to do anything normal with my own baby.

What great news! I just caught myself up on your last couple of posts and I really enjoyed hearing your Spiritual experience with Jackson and Claire. I have felt Skylar staring at me and their are no words to describe that feeling. Amazing! I am so very happy for you and your family. I cannot wait to see you holding Trey at church and hearing more about "normal" mothering experiences.

Oh Kelly, it's so good to hear that things are going well. I just spent the day at the hospital. My niece just lost her baby (he was 38 weeks along). There was a knot in the umbilical cord. It's been a deeply sad day for all of us.

Kelly, I am so happy to see that smile on your face. We will continue our prayers for your sweet baby boy and his continued progress. I showed Mario the pictures this weekend and he said he was happy that Caidgen gets to be a big brother again.
