Truman gave me a present when I got the hospital today. He let me hold him all swaddled up like a regular baby. It was the first time I've held him and been able to see his face at the same time. I know I'm biased, but he's the cutest baby there ever was all wrapped up like that.
We talked and read for more than an hour. He was quite cozy and his oxygen levels were beautiful (that is after we got all the snot cleaned out of his nose from the sneezing he did just before I held him). Nurse Bev said that he had been alert a lot today and she just thought he needed extra attention. I also got to lift him back into the isolette when we were done. It reminded of just how little he still is.
He is up to 14 CCs (3.5 ounces a day) on his feeds and is tolerating them wonderfully. Nurse Bev said his PLL line (the central line that the IV nutrition goes in) is near the end of its life. There's talk that when it has to be pulled in the next few days that it might not be replaced. We've just got to get enough milk volume to take its place before then.
