There is a reason we never say discharge dates out loud around here because they always seem to change as soon as you do. Dr. Hawkins came in to check on Jack this morning and said they are thinking we'll discharge on Saturday now instead of Friday. It seems they thought they could do his PKU blood test on Friday, but I guess they can't do it 'til Saturday so they decided to keep us an extra day rather than make us come back up. We feel very good about that. It also gives us a little more time to work on his feeding.
Speaking of feeding, this morning when I gave Jack his bottle at 6:00 he managed to get down 28 cc's all on his own! He probably could have kept going but we decided not to wear him out too much so he can hopefully do it again when the speech therapist comes this morning. That is such huge progress since the last few attempts he's only managed around 5 cc's out of the 48 that he needs to consume. It also means that he is exhausted and he has been sleeping really well for the last little while so I could catch up on some sleep myself.
