What an amazing day it has been! Benjamin is doing wonderful. He seems so relaxed and happier than ever. He is tolerating his assessments and being held much better than just a week ago. It has been such a special day for us; we enjoyed spending Benjamin's 1st Christmas with him in the NICU. We took in his stocking and a few of his presents. : ) I held him skin to skin earlier in the day and Todd held him swaddled this evening. What a blessing he is.
Benjamin has now hit the 6 pound mark! He weighs 6 pounds 1.2 ounces. The doctors even bumped up his feeds a little more today- watch out full term babies. His doctors are planning to try and take Benjamin off of CPAP and try him on only oxygen thru a nasal cannula in 7-10 days. This will be another huge step for him. They have said it could be challenging, but we're ready for him to try it!
Thank you for your continued prayers and Merry Christmas! We are so thankful for the special gift God has given us.
home, sweet home
