Reagan update

Reagan was taken off oxygen for 6-7 hours yesterday and coped very well for awhile. His stats then started to drop around midnight so we turned it back on.

The big news however is his eating! Without the feeding tube! He has been doing very well, taking down 80-100ml every 3 hours. That is about what you would expect of a totally healthy baby his size. Yeah!

We still have a bit to go as he is still working too hard to breathe and eat. His chest is still drawing in too much when he breathes and his heart rate is going up too high when he eats. However, he is definitely getting better. I am still optimistic about a Monday or Tuesday discharge.

Here he is chilling in his bouncy chair, without the feeding tube.
