Life in the NICU as we know it....Kaden is still growing.
He now weighs FOUR pounds EIGHT ounces!!
ounces are a huge deal because that just means he is closer to
another pound. He ended up needing eye surgery for what is called ROP.
He did really well and didn't stay on the vent for very long. He is getting to be really popular around here. The doctors fight to round on him and I think it is cute! The nurses just love him...and we can't get enough of him. It will be his 3 month birthday on September 5...wierd I know!
As of right now we are trying to wean the liters of oxygen he is requiring and that will come with time and growth. We are also trying to get him more interested in eating or "nippling" from a bottle. The language in the NICU has become second nature. I have learned so much about the body...about myself...and just life in general.
So...he just needs to keep growing. He will have one more surgery before we leave the hospital. He has two hernias that will be fixed which is very common in boys of prematurity.
We will be moving soon and I am so excited to have a little more room. It is only 100 ft away from our apartment and in the same complex but I am still excited!
Thanks for all the continued support! It means the world to us!
