NICU day 89

Today was a pretty good day on the feeding front. I went into the office so D was here with him and he got mostly bottles for the day, though we did have one good nursing session after his 9:00 cares tonight. He ended his day at 64 percent of his total feed volume orally, which is great, considering we’ve been averaging closer to 40 percent lately.

It’s a step in the right direction, but it’s a painfully slow process. He is 39 weeks gestational today, which means we are exactly one week away from my original due date. All along we’ve been told my due date is a pretty good estimate for when we can expect to be discharged, but it’s looking more and more like we may be here past that date, which is a tough pill to swallow. It’s possible he could rapidly improve and we could be out of here in a few days, but it’s unlikely at this point.

E turns three months on Thursday and is up to 7 lbs 7 oz now. Onto day 90…
