Day 101


We have not heard back from Truman's surgeon, but his neonatologist called the surgeon again today requesting surgery be scheduled for either Monday or Tuesday. Truman will have a barium enema down in radiology today, which is one of the preparatory steps for surgery.

His feeds were upped to 39CCs per feeding, which is 10.4 ounces per day or 1.3 ounces per feeding. He also cut Truman back to two breast feeding sessions per day so that he burns as few of calories as possible, but still keeps that skill and bond with Mom.

I just wanted to extend my thoughts and prayers to you all. I am from the BBC website, and I had my own preemie in Sept. 2004. It was a long hard road, but my DD just recently turned 2 and is PERFECT! The first 18 months were a definite test on our abilities to cope, but everything is wonderful now. I check in daily to see how Truman is doing, and I wish you all the best. STAY STRONG!
