Joy and I are pleased to report that Spencer’s been doing really well this week. The doctors and nurses at the NICU have slowly been grooming him (and us) to leave. Since the Fourth of July weekend, he hasn’t had any more episodes. Well, sort of. On Sunday night, they gave Spencer his car seat test. This is where they sit him in a car seat like the one we have for 90 minutes to make sure he doesn’t have any kind of episode or melt down. The nurses sat him on the counter in his car seat and they said he promptly went to sleep. After the test was complete, but before they got him out out of his seat, his desat alert tripped on his monitor, but he immediately self-corrected. It wasn’t big, but they still had to note it. Joy and I were prepared to take him home yesterday, but the doctor in charge during the rounds yesterday wouldn’t sign off on it, so it looks like it might be later this weekend. That’s still huge! It’s been over 2 months and our baby boy is about to come home!!!
Speaking of huge, Spencer has been feeding like a champ and as of this morning, he’s up to 6 lbs 12 oz! Yesterday he was 2 months old and we got some adorable pictures of him.
