Good and bad things

Good things:  Cooper is quickly coming off of oxygen!!  He still needs a little (1/8 L) when sleeping, but when he's up, it's off.

So far, Cooper seems to be doing well with the new formula.

Today, Cooper was the happiest I've seen him in a long time.  He smiled a lot, was awake more, did some exercises for me and a speech therapist, and just seemed to be in a better mood in general.

Bad things:  We're having some trouble introducing bigger feeds to Cooper.  He's been on continuous feeds or Pedialyte for so long that his stomach just can't handle a significant volume all at once.  Do we're taking it slow and trying to get him all the nutrition he needs.

Yesterday, his lungs had a setback.  For some unknown reason, he had a LOT of crackles in his lungs.  They seem to be better today.  It was strange though and delayed some things, which may keep us in the hospital and extra day or two.


Cooper in his first pair of two-piece pajamas.  Thanks Zanette! 


Love his little grin!

I showed Zanette and she said, "Aww, look at that sweet, precious baby boy." I agree :)
