He is up to five pounds now and taking 23 mls (just over 4 teaspoons) of special formula every three hours, his little tummy is not ready yet for my milk. We have hit another bump in the road as he has developed pulmonary hypertension and now has some fluid surrounding his heart. They have started him on new medication to help. I pray that he responds well to the medicine and continues to feed well which will bring us closer to getting him home. For now he has to remain on the oxygen due to the high blood pressure - which was causing him to drop his stats. Charlie and I appreciate all of your prayers and encouragement through our extended stay in the NICU, your support means so much to us!!
