Lochlan continues to amaze me. He is tolerating his feeds very well - he's up to 12cc every 2 hours and started the fortifier yesterday. They are going to double the fortifier tomorrow and if he tolerates that, his picc line will be removed!! woo-hoo!
(that's the lines that go into his arm and has his arm from hand to elbow in a splint to hold everything is place) I was just saying to Rob last night that I can't wait for that to be removed. Give his arm a break and let the air at it.
Last night when he was weighed he was 1100 grams (2.4 pounds or 2 pounds and 6 ounces) He did have a big #2 after he was weighed and was also weighed him with his tubes...so he's probably less than the 1100 grams. We shall see tonight what he's up to.
His oxygen requirements were sitting at about 35% for most of the day which is great considering he's been around 45-50% the last few days. And he wasn't having as many spells. He still needs to be suctioned every few hours but the nurse told me that's to be expected due to his gestational age.
I took some new pics today. Some of you were wondering how small/big he is compared to other things. So hopefully you'll get a better idea.
Take care and thanks for continued prayers.
