Slow and Steady

The past couple days have been fairly uneventful, which continues to be a good thing. There are no signs of the infection flaring up. All recent cultures have been negative and his wound site looks clean. His feeding has increased to 50 ml every 3 hours and Mindy has started to introduce the breast but we think it will take some time before he is ready for that. He is now a whopping 5 lbs 5 ozs! His breathing is stable but still a little fast for our liking, but that seems to be normal for a preemie at this age. There are no signs of any heart problems (knock on wood). We will upload more pictures soon. All the nurses think he is adorable. Of course we do too but we are biased. Will draws pictures at preschool for Scott and we hang them on the wall next to his crib. Thanks again for all your support. Phil, Mindy, Will and Scott.

Hi Mindy and Phil,

Just had a chance to catch up how Scott is doing! It all sounds good, but you've had to go through some rough times. You're quite versed in all the medical terminology! I'm so glad Scott is doing well and getting bigger and stronger. What a journey! Poor little guy. He's a fighter! Our thoughts are with all of you!

Love,
Steph and Bob
