Cutie Pie

The little one is still doing great. He got put back on CPAP today, and seemed to be doing even better than he did the last time he made the transition. Maybe he's becoming a pro at this breathing thing?!?! He did lose a few ounces over the last few days taking him down to 4 lbs 15 oz, so they are adding a calorie boost to the milk in his feeding tube. Both of his scans from yesterday came back clear, so now all that Carter has to concentrate on is getting bigger, eating, and breathing. The nurse set a goal for us to hold him tomorrow. We're keeping our fingers crossed.
Here he is chillin' with a paci.

Wonderful!! so the infection is gone? He assume he just lost ounces because of all the transitions he's been through right? I love all the pictures you post of him-he is a little sweetie.
