Today is Spencer’s 2 week birthday and he is doing wonderful! For awhile he wasn’t digesting Joy’s milk very well and so his residuals were high (food left in his tummy). The nurse gave him a suppository and some medicine and it seems to have helped. He’s gone from feedings of 3-5 mL to a whopping 21 mL now! He’s still only at 3 lb. 8 oz, but we expect that’s going to change now that he’s eating like a champ. Since he’s eating so well now, they decided to take his IV out this morning. Another big step for Spencer!
All Wet Behind the Ears
Earlier this week, Joy and I were asked if we wanted to give Spencer a bath. We didn’t give him a full “immersion” bath in a tub, just a gently wipe down with some wet towelettes and baby soap.
