Benjamin is still doing very well on the CPAP and seems much more comfortable and happy. We also think his anti-fungal treatment is working, and he has had no need for blood transfusions in a few days. They have been increasing his milk intake and he is up to 14 ml every three hours now – this is a record for him. They are going to increase it until he’s around 22ml and then he’ll be off the IV nutrition. Though he is, of course, still getting the milk through a feeding tube – it will be a while before he can drink from a bottle.
In other good news – they did an eye test on Ben and he did great. Preemies are very prone to an eye disorder, but so far so good for the little man. They will test him every two weeks to make sure that doesn’t change.
More news later… might have some fun photos to share!
