One less thing to worry about ... Sidney had his feeding tube taken out today. He has almost all of his milestones finished.
1. Has to be at least 4lbs -- he's 5lbs 2oz today
2. Maintaining his body temp -- he's staying steady in the 98 degree range
3. Feeding from bottle or breast exclusively -- I've breastfed him all week and he's been taking a bottle like a champ (nurses' exact words, lol)
4. Breathing room air -- he's on a very low flow of oxygen still.
We're thinking it could be only 2 weeks or even possibly 1 week til he's discharged. We're getting closer and closer to him coming home! Yay! Finally we'll be able to be a real family.
Here are some cute pics of our little guy without his feeding tube. Can't wait to see what he looks like with that stinkin nasal canulla out of his nose! All in time, I guess. :) He's such a good baby.
