Seth is doing really well this week. He has had no episodes of apnea. He has started his feedings again. Right now he is getting 6 cc's every three hours. Every 12 hours they increase it 2 cc's. So tonight at 11 p.m. he will go up to 8 cc's. He's tolerating the feedings very well. He's such a stinker! On Sunday he pulled his feeding tube out four times. So the nurse put little socks on his hands to try to prevent him from grabbing and pulling. Not to be outsmarted, he decides that all he needs to do is use his tongue and he can push it out. Now there's a smart kid! Maybe here in a week or two he'll be able to try nippling his feedings a little!

So another thing if you want to read up about is ROP, Retinopathy of Prematurity. Seth's eyes are looked at each week to keep an eye on this condition. Right now he has stage 2. http://www.nei.nih.gov/health/rop/

We love the little guy so much!
