My nightly story time with mom and dad.
Just a few more pics from the past couple days. Evan has been doing really really good with his bottle feeds. He generally drinks the full amount...unless he's absolutely exhausted, then they will gavage the rest. And some of the feeds throughout the night they will gavage if he is sound asleep to give him a break. It's hard work for little guys!!
It's getting to be so much fun though because now with bottling he is out of the isolette with us and then we get more snuggle time after his feed!!! So yesterday I went earlier so I was there for his noon feed, and then his 3pm feed...so we got lots of good snuggle time.
Then last night after we got home I forgot to get containers for storing my milk so I haaaaad to go back to the hospital. I got there just before midnight which happens to be one of his feed times, so I stayed and did his feed and got another 1/2 hour snuggle!!! It was the perfect way to end the night!
Evan lost a little weight yesterday (he's still in the 4lb 6ou range), but I guess that's common when they start bottling because it takes so much energy and some inevitably spurts from their mouths. So I just pray that he gets a good gain here soon! Don't want him backsliding!!
But otherwise he is doing really well!!
My infection seems to be easing up. I'm still on antibiotics until tomorrow, but I'm feeling much better.
Well I should run. Soon time to start getting ready to head to see the little man!
Thank you for your continued prayers!!!!!
