Beefing up!

Jack has gained some weight. He is currently 2 pounds, 9 ounces. So he is up 3 ounces from his birth weight. He did lose weight at first so this is not too bad.

He is eating 18.5cc at each feed. He is eating so well that they removed his PICC line. He is now getting all nutrition through the oral gastric tube.

They had to raise his oxygen concentration on the ventilator to 25%. That is still pretty good. They did tell me to expect that it will go up and down.They have his breaths per minute at 28. He does over ride the vent sometimes and breathe on his own.

He is doing pretty good. He still has a long way to go. Thanks for all the thoughts, prayers and good thoughts!
