One Small Step

There really aren't too many updates from today. The nurses said that he had a great night, and was perfectly content as long as he was on his tummy and had a pacifier in his mouth. He also got to stay on the prong mask which was awesome. Carter had an ultrasound on his heart, but we haven't heard the results quite yet. They did initiate feedings again. His tummy didn't digest much from the first feeding, but it did work on the second and third one. This is a huge milestone for him, and we hope that he keeps on improving. Another good thing was that he managed to pull himself out of all of his episodes of not breathing without any help. As soon as he can stop having those episodes for a week and continue to feed we can bring him home. Keep on going Carter! Your brother and sister REALLY want to meet you.
