Carter had another good night. His plumbing is working great and he took his 5:30am feeding of 45ml all by a bottle. We gave him his 8:30 feeding with a bottle, but he only got about 25ml in before he pooped out on me and the nurse administered the rest through the feeding tube. They do this because after 20 minutes, he is just burning too many calories and so we need to give him a break. Night nurse schooled us on our "reading materials" last night before Garett left this morning. He has to be back at work because he is on call.
Carter is 5 lbs 5 oz now...he gained another ounce in the last 24 hours. We are getting bigger and stronger! Dr. Pope, Carter's pediatrician, says that he may get his own room by Tuesday or Wednesday and we should all be home together by next weekend. The steps are small but we are incredibly thankful that they are in a forward motion and not backwards.
Grandpa Craig and Grandma Robbie are on their way to meet their first grandchild!
