This was posted on the high-risk pregnancy board and I thought I would share it here. Hope Rebecca doesn't mind.

Not only do I not mind, I am thrilled you have posted an update because I am either sleeping or at the hospital.

To add to the update:

Grant took his first bottle tonight, and boy is he a fan.

Grant can come home once two issues are corrected:

-he breathes really rapidly. It doesn't affect his oxygen sats, but it's the kind of thing that is best fixed before he comes home.

- he needs to fully wean off the TPN (IV electrolytes, fats, proteins) through his picc line and get all of his nutrition by bottle

We are crossing our fingers that he can maybe come home at the end of next week, but our realistic goal is May 21, his due date.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

He is so beautiful. I was wondering how you guys were. I'm glad he is doing great. Hope you'll be home soon.

Big News! They took Grant off TPN, removed his feeding tube, and if he continues to eat well, he will be coming home at the end of the week!

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!
