Jacob is doing well. He did so well that he did not have to go to the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. He was able to go back to the step down unit. He has been in some pain but it is being managed and he is sleeping right now.
They were able to give him the mini mickey button like we were hoping for instead of a long tube that would have to be changed out in a month. He woke up crying and one of the lyposcopic incisions bleed a little but it is ok now.
Jake can't eat for 24 hours. After that we will start his feeds slowly beginning with 1/3rd of his normal amount. He will get it continuously at first and then each day he will get more until he is built up to his goal amount. He will eventually go to bollis feeds which means that he will get larger amounts in a shorter time span and then a few hours off. Like a normal baby feeds.
They said that we should be able to go home in about a week however until they kick us out I am not getting my hopes up.
Please keep praying for Jacob, he is in a lot of pain. Praying for a quick recovery.
Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!
Kathy, Andy, Aidan and Jacob
