central line's still not out!

Caleb still has his central line. He hasn't used it since Saturday. He doesn't need the line since he is off the IV fluids. The dr told us to it is very painful to take the line out. Caleb is still on the respirator until the line gets pulled because they will need to heavily sedate him.

He was doing good enough to get weighed and bathed Tuesday night. He now weighs 11 pounds, 8.6 ounces.

They have adjusted his feeding schedule so he can sleep through the night. He gets fed at 5 am, 10 am, 2 pm, 6 pm, and 10:30 pm. He is now getting 140 ccs (a little over 4 1/2 ounces) during the day and a little more at 10:30 and 5.

Thank you for the update, it's good news and sort of bad news. That is wonderful if he can sleep through the night. That will really help you when you bring him home.
