A happy day! We got some good news:
1. Joshua hasn't had any breathing issues (oxygen desaturations) for 2 days and our Dr. is considering weaning him off the caffiene! Which means he's on his way!
2. Joshua weighs 5 lbs 11 oz! He's growing!
3. The evening nurse said she thinks probally a week or a week and a half and Joshua will be coming home! He's been put on alternating gavage (through the tube) and breast or bottle feeds for a couple of days and is doing well with that - he's actually been getting more bottle feeds than gavage feeds because he's been "asking" for the bottle (rooting around and getting mad if the nurses don't give him the bottle!)
I gave Joshua a bath this afternoon and he didn't like it at all. A typical baby boy! And the nurses are so sweet they gave me a cupcake to celebrate Joshua's first month of life! Amazing that he's been with us for a month! Also amazing -- his great great Grandma is turning 101 tomorrow! God has been so good to us!
