Weston got to take off his EKG leads this afternoon and get rid of the tele box they have been attached to. One more thing gone..he is almost wireless (in Jeremy's words)!
Weston is up to getting a bottle 6 times out of the 8 feedings a day. We did that Thursday and Friday so we will see if we continue that this weekend or if we get to offer him a bottle every time starting tomorrow morning. When the doctors come around in the morning that will be reassessed depending on if Weston continues to gain weight. It is a difficult balance to figure out how much to push him with the bottle in order to learn those oral skills, yet not to burn too many calories.
Here Weston is sleeping in MorMor's arms. We are discovering he has a ton of fun facial expressions in his sleep and apparently could turn into quite the dramatic little boy someday...
Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers. Weston is definitely on the uphill journey that we hope continues so we can be home soon.
