The past two days have brought about many positive changes for our baby boy. He was diagnosed with jaundice on Tuesday, but is already off of the bili lights. He no longer has the IV, antibiotics, or oxygen. In addition, he is digesting breast milk through his feeding tube and is also trying the breastfeed! His eyes opened for the first time yesterday and we've had a few moments of looking into one another's eyes. I've been enjoying some kangaroo time with him each afternoon, too. He's a little snuggler!
The next step is for our little guy to start regulating his own temperature. I am bringing some wee outfits for him to wear in his incubator tomorrow. The nurses will start reducing the temperature inside his incubator gradually, and hopefully within two or three days, he will be in an open air crib!
Thank you for your prayers!
