We did not want to jinx it, but Benjamin has been off of CPAP since 4am on Wednesday. By my trusty Office Depot calculator, that is over 60 hours! That seriously destroys his previous records. Does this mean he’s off completely? Only Ben knows that for sure – but so far, so good.
Besides CPAP, do you know what Benjamin doesn’t need? Antifungal drugs, that’s what. As of yesterday he has finished his 6-week course. This means he doesn’t need a constant IV on him and we can stop poking him like a pin cushion. Hooray!
So now we are down to working on his feeding. We need to get him to take all his milk through a bottle. He has been practicing up to now, but now it’s time to get serious.
Ben’s room is almost ready and really looks like a baby’s room. The crib is put together (thanks so much Sandy, Joseph and family!) and the glider is set up and after spending time in there, it might be my favorite room of our apartment. We can’t wait for it to include one Benjamin.
We also want to thank everyone for all your comments on our posts. I know we have said it before, but it means an awful lot to have the support.
