Day 5 in NICU

We arrived at the hospital at 8am and visited with Carter's doctor. She said that she is pleased with his progress and the earliest we may be home is Sunday. She then stated she increased his amount of food from 40ml to 45ml and if his breathing continues to improve, the nurses may introduce bottle feedings this evening!! Throughout the night, the nurses gave Carter his first bath, wore his first pair of pj's, and turned the heat off in his bed. This morning, he was still able to retain heat and is doing very well!! We will keep you posted.
