Benjamin update time! For those of you keeping track – it’s day 171. Mr Ben is making progress on his CPAP weaning, but I’m not going to say how much progress, because as we have learned in the past Benjamin actually reads this blog. We wouldn’t want to put too much pressure on the boy and jinx it like the last couple of times.
He is also now off the antibiotics for those infections from last week and looks like he’s clear. And still another few weeks on the IV anti-fungal.
The feedings are getting easier and Amy can routinely get Benjamin to take a full bottle. It has been a lot easier since they started adding rice cereal to the milk.
And lastly Benjamin is just a half an ounce away from being 8 pounds. Way to chunk up buddy!
