The EKG results were normal! There has been talk amongst the nurses about taking Samuel off the Lasix and nasal cannula both within the next couple of days. I guess we will see.
Samuel was moved into the 'main unit' today. I'm really never comfortable with such big changes - but it does mean that we are getting closer to going home. The babies in the room Samuel is in are the babies that are working on going home in the upcoming weeks. The problem is that the room is much noisier than Samuel is used to - and his vitals aren't quite as stable as they have been. Hopefully he will adjust in the next couple of hours.
He is still doing great with his bottles. If he does well tonight with his bottle, and gains weight, they will increase the number of bottles he gets. Instead of getting only one bottle every 12 hours, he will get two. A lot of it depends on his stamina. We continue to pray that he will not aspirate.....no milk into his lungs.
