Liam has now been put on a continual increase in his feeds. Every 12 hours, as long as he is tolerating it, they will increase his feedings by 1 cc! That means he will be at full feedings for his weight within a week. There are 30 cc in 1 ounce of breast milk so you get the idea of how much he reccieves. We are up to 9 cc this morning. Please pray that his feedings will continue with no setbacks or complications!
Because they decided to work on his feedings this week the Dr is waiting on the vent. Unless Liam pulls out his tube (which is a possibility as he gets wiser and bigger) they are still holding out on chaning it. It's hard because I want him off of it but yet I need to realize that it has taken us 7 weeks to get to the point we are at right now...
