JACOB IS COMING HOME!!!!!!!!
God Willing, Jacob will be discharged from the hospital on Thursday! This is such exciting news and I can't wait to bring our baby home!
He is having his carseat test tonight and they are tying up some loose ends (last minute blood work, a renal ultrasound, scheduling follow-up appointment
He weighs 7 lb 8 oz today and is doing great with his feeds. His tube came out on Saturday night at 8 PM (he took it out himself!) and he has been feeding by mouth for almost 48 hours all on his own!
He will be home before my goal date of 7/23! It has been a long road and it is not over just because he is coming home. There will be many doctor's appointment
I also forgot to mention over the past couple of weeks that they no longer hear Jacob's heart murmur (his VSD) and they have decided that it has closed. They are not even going to do a follow-up echo because it was so small that the doctor thinks if we haven't heard it in that long that it has closed by itself (which it usually would have done by the time he was born anyway so that was right on schedule).
Thank you so much to all for the continued support and prayers. Our miracle baby is coming home!!!
