Friday, March 9

Benjamin is doing good today. They have stopped the antibiotics as his infection is gone. They did take some urine for a test again. They did a head ultrasound on him again today. We are praying that the bleeding has stopped and that God has worked a miracle on our little Benjamin. Benjamin is getting fed 1 ml every 3 hours now. He desatted a lot today because he hates being handled and had to get a lot of things done to him today. He weighs 710 grams (down 10g).

Kyle is still very sleepy from his infection. They are going to start the indocid to try close his PDA again so he will not be feeding anymore. His oxygen levels were at 26-28% today which is good. He was desatting a few times, mostly when Benjamin desatted. He weighs 690 grams (up32g).
