this post has no title

When we got to the hospital to visit Caleb Sunday, we were surprised to see him on the CPAP. He had a rough night Saturday, so they put him on CPAP Sunday morning. Monday morning, they made him his own special high-flow nasal cannula. He has been on the high-flow cannula since then.

They stopped his bottle feeds Sunday when he went on the CPAP and they do not have orders to re-start them yet. When I was there Saturday, I got to watch him eat 7 1/2 ccs from a little mini-bottle they make him. He ate it, swallowed it, and kept it done - all 7 1/2 ccs!

He is now getting 95 ccs (a little over 3 ounces) every 4 hours by a feeding tube. They have cut his IV fluids back more. His color is looking so much better!

Caleb woke up last night while I was there and just stared at me. He would look at his mobile, then me. When he woke up, he reached out to hold my hand - then he reached out his other arm to hold the nurses hand. My heart melted. He is the greatest baby in the whole world!
