Yesterday Sam had a visit from Grandma Kruse!
He says Grammy Lisa needs to come for another visit soon too.
Today they turned off his oxygen and took off his cannula. He’s been breathing room air all day without any problem!
Sam is also learning how to nurse. He’s still getting all his milk through a feeding tube, but instead of 12ml/hr he has been getting 24 ml over 1 hour, followed by an hour break. He is showing hunger cues by the time his next feed starts and is starting to show signs of readiness to take food orally. We are working on getting him to latch and practice breastfeeding and he’s doing amazing!
We are still crossing all our fingers and toes that a bed opens up at CDH this week.
