Removing the PICC line

Wow! What a day!

Jacob is up to 2 lb 6 oz as of last night. He is on full feeds which they are boosting with human fortifier to give him some extra calories and nutrients. The IV has been stopped and his PICC line is still in, but will be taken out tomorrow morning if all goes well tonight.

The Chief of Newborn Medicine came in to talk to me today and said they are working on getting him on the nasal cannula in the next FEW DAYS. For those of you who don't know, the nasal cannula is just the two prongs in the nose which supply oxygen. At the rate he is going, he could be transferred in no time which would be great for Ian and me. Jordan Hospital is 10 minutes away and parking is free so it would be a huge help to have him close to home and not draining our bank account!

That is all for today! As Kip would say....peace out.
