To all you Blog Stalkers out there - sorry we have not updated enough for you (Auntie Barbie). We will continue to do our best !!!
Here is the latest on Liam...
Day 23 :
We just got back from visiting Liam. He had another big day. His nurse said he was very awake and alert for his 8:00am feeding, so he got a bottle and finished it all! I was there for his 11:00 and 2:00 feeding. He is starting to wake up with out my help before he needs to eat. This is a great sign that he is progressing! He got 2 additional bottles today - both from me :0) and he drank all of those too. I hope this means we can continue to increase the amount of times he gets a bottle and decrease the tube feedings. I think Liam is ready to have the tube out! Monday when I was there to visit, he had pulled it out himself! Oops, too bad he had to get it put right back in.
As you can see in the picture on the left, dad had a hand in getting Liam dressed. He has this onesie in red and blue. In the picture on the right, mom is feeding Liam a bottle. The more you eat the sooner you get to come home! He is currently at 4 lbs 7.5 oz. If weight gain was the only requirement to come home, he would be here!
I had a meeting with Liam's doctor on Monday. I had a list of questions for him, obviously the biggest one was when can he come home. I didn't get an answer to that question. It's up to Liam. It does not go by weight or age, just development. I guess we will only get a day or two notice when it is time, so we better be ready. Our goal is to have him home before Thanksgiving.
