Update on Porter

Porter is doing very well...still. He got his IV taken out. He seems to be learning how to breast feed very well. He has lost a couple of ounces in weight, but is now on the upside. It's a lot easier to get him in and out of the isolette (incubator thing) now that we don't have to worry so much about his IV that was in his belly button. Plus the Doc's say he should be able to be put in a crib in the next day or two for good. He is at his "goal" of feeding...he gets 45cc's of food every 3 hours.

This entire experience has been pretty cool. Its challenging and new, but way better than we thought it was going to be. Mostly because he is doing way better than most thought he would do. Not that anyone didn't think he would do fine...its just that they try to prepare you for the worst.

Its been really nice for me to be able to stay home with Carlie and Maci during the day. Ronni usually comes home in the early afternoon to eat food and be with us till she and I go back around 7 till midnight or so to be with Porter.

We have realized that we haven't taken any new video or pictures since Monday, so we are going to take more today and get them posted tonight or in the morning.

Till then...
