He Doubled His Birth Weight!!!

Jack has officially doubled his birth weight! He now weighs 4 pounds, 12 ounces. He is now a big fat fattie!

He is now eating through the gastric tube (into his stomach) only because he pulled the other tube out. He has been doing ok with that. He is still on oxygen although they were able to reduce it a bit. He has still been having some heart rate and oxygen saturation drops but it has not been as bad as it was.

I asked them when they were going to try feeding him with a bottle. They said they usually like to wait until the baby is totally off oxygen because the bottle feeding can cause desaturations.

I am still trying to get him moved but I am meeting a lot of obstacles. I am happy that he is doing better. Thanks for all the prayers and good vibes!
