Hey there you faithful checkers-inners. :) Joshua's doing great! Thanks for your prayers. We had a great weekend, and changing his dressings went fine. I even managed to change them on my own. I only had to change them on Sunday, which means he's not leaking through the bandages for 3 whole days! I'm feeding him all the time - like every 2 or 3 hours. He's getting about 8 or 9 oz a day. I want more in him, but that's what I can get in him now. Hopefully he'll pick up in a few days. I'm giving him expressed breastmilk as much as possible, but supplementing 2 or 3 oz a day with formula. I'm having a hard time getting my production up to meet his needs.
We've been holding him in a sling a lot, and I think that'll help him gain weight too. That's my theory anyways.
More updates to follow. We're not home just yet, so I can't relax and send pictures.
