Mommy stopped by this morning and held me for a long time before my feeding. Then, Mommy and Daddy came back before by 9 pm feeding. Daddy held me for a really long time. You can see me in his arms above. Daddy tried to see if I would take the preemie pacifier. I went to town on that bink! Mommy and Daddy are going to try to get a video taken to post to the blog so you can see how cute I am sucking on the pacifier.
The nurse weighed me tonight and I am up to 6 lbs 7 ozs! I have almost gained a whole pound in the last three weeks.
The pediatric surgeon stopped by and it sounds like I will be scheduled for my G tube surgery on Thursday afternoon. Mommy and Daddy got to ask him some questions. The surgery will take about an hour. Within about 24 hours they will try to start feeding me through the tube. Then the plan is to get me up to full feedings before they send me home. The resident thought another two weeks in the hospital so it looks like I might be home just in time for my Aunt Kristin to come for a visit.
