Today was a good day. David has finished 8 out of his last 9 bottles. This has been our best feeding day. Dr. Ferguson decided to add more calories per feeding and decrease his total number of liquid to 60cc per feeding. His weight continues to increase, so we are hopeful we will go home soon. The doctors put David on some medicine yesterday that will help him get rid of the extra fluid that his body holds due to the heart condition. Cardiology ordered an ECHO and chest x-ray, and we were thankful to hear that there have been no changes to his heart.
David is now able to wear normal baby clothes. He will be 4 weeks old on Saturday, so it’s been fun to finally have him dressed.
