Day 4 in NICU

Carter is improving but still needs some medical interventions. He has been removed from the bili bed and his feeding amounts have been increasing all day long. We are now at 40 ml which is about 1.5 oz. The doctor was in this afternoon and she is pleased with his progress. She said that they could remove his IV when the site had become a problem. The nurses took the IV off at about 2:30pm and as a result his feedings were increased to that 40ml amount. We are still staying at a hotel because we don't have a room yet. When Carter earns his ticket out of the NICU they will give him a room on the floor and so then we will be staying here. For now though, we are staying at the Baymont Inn & Suites. The hospital has a pretty sweet deal with that hotel. After purchasing a vouchure at the admissions office here at the hospital, we only have to pay $10 a night. What a God send and blessing!

I took some more photos and a video. Hope you enjoy them.
