Cooper's newer schedule

Once again, we have a new schedule for Cooper.  The nutritionist at Children's basically gave us his formula and water requirements and told us to figure it out, which was just fine by me.  The way they were doing it in the hospital was ridiculous.  Plus, his breathing treatment schedule has changed.  So here it is:

8 a.m.- Breathing treatment:  2 puffs Albuterol, 2 puffs Atrovent, 4 puffs Flovent plus CPT's.  He also gets Sabril, Prevacid, Robinol (a new medicine that helps to dry up secretions), and 40 mL of water.

10 a.m.- "Eats" 125 mL formula through the pump.  It takes one hour to feed him now.

12 p.m.- Breathing treatment: 2 puffs Albuterol plus CPT's.  He gets another 40 mL of water.

2 p.m- "Eats 125 mL of formula.

4 p.m.- Breathing treatment: 2 puffs Albuterol plus CPT's.  He gets 40 mL more water.

6 p.m.- "Eats" 125 mL of formula.

8 p.m.- Breathing treatment:  2 puffs Albuterol, 2 puffs Atrovent, 4 puffs Flovent plus CPT's.  He also gets Sabril, Prevacid, Robinol, a puff of Nasonex in each nostril, and 40 mL of water.

9 p.m.- We hook him up to the feeding pump for his 10 hour overnight feed.  He "eats" 39 mL an hour.

So his grand total is 765 mL of formula and 160 mL of water.  Plus he gets breathing treatments every four hours throughout the day, but we don't have to do them overnight.  This schedule is easier for me to wrap my head around than the other one was.
