Friday July 17

The boy is back in full form!! He weighs 3lb 3oz!!!! He’s HUGE!!! They got the PICC line in (not pick…who knew) , which stands for peripherally inserted central catheter. It’s an itty bitty tube threaded into a vein that stretches all the way to the heart, well just below it. They use’m because they’re more stable then IV’s, last longer and are less prone to infection. He needs it because when they start his feeds again(tomorrow J) they’ll start slow and he’ll still need additional nutrition. Oh yea they may take the oxygen tube off tomorrow or Sunday! He hasn’t had any issues AT ALL!!!

I’m so happy to see this boy smiling!!!
