Our tiny babe is doing so well. He is breathing on his own and requires no oxygen support. He has had a few spells of apnea (not breathing) but only needs gentle stimulation to remember to start again. This is very common in preemies. He is eating well, too. I have been able to nurse him at most feedings. I wasn't able to the first time and the other times we missed due to my trying (pretty unsuccessfully) to rest. We are trying to get him to bottle feed after nursing. He doesn't really want to take it from me. I think he has already figured out that I am not the bottle lady. He's a smart boy! He is doing well keeping his temperature up, too. His health has far exceeded anything we could have hoped for. God has given us such a precious gift and it keeps unfolding. We truly are blessed beyond measure.
