Just a quick update...Benjamin now weighs 6 lbs, 7 ounces; he is getting so big.
Benjamin's eye exam today was the same as last week, still mild ROP, but his eyes are still developing.
We are still waiting on the report for his kidney's and that should be in tomorrow.
Benjamin tried nasal cannula (NS) for the first time today and it seems like he handled it ok. He did have another bradycardia while on NS during one of his feeds, but he bounced back. Hopefully this gets under control soon.
They are taking it slow with him right now-switching him between CPAP and NS every 6 hours for the first 24 hours. Tomorrow, depending on how he is doing, they will put him back on CPAP if he is not handling NS or extend the time between CPAP and NS to every 12 hour if he is doing ok.
Please continue to keep Benjamin in your prayers.
home, sweet home
