This baby goes to 11

In other news, the fungal infection is still around… So in the search for the source they took a new urine culture today (this time directly from his bladder using a very fine needle). They are also performing a spinal tap to be able to run a culture on his spinal fluid in case the infection is hiding there.

Also some of you noticed that some pictures of Benjamin he doesn’t have his CPAP gear on. That’s because sometimes when we hold him they test him off of the assistance to see how well he does. So far he has been off for stretches as long as 45 minutes and has done very well. You may also notice that he doesn’t have a feeding tube in his mouth. That is because they moved it to his nose. This sets the stage for trying out a bottle in the very near future.
