After Jack's not so stellar performance at the cardiologists yesterday, we had to go in to the pediatrician this afternoon to check his oxygen sats and make sure he was doing okay on the 1/2 liter. Well, on a 1/2 liter he was hovering around 88, so we dropped it down to 1/8 liter for 10 minutes to see what he would do and he stayed around 84. I knew he was in better shape than the 70 they were seeing yesterday. He just hadn't quite recovered from his temper tantrum yet. We go back again on Monday for another check. They also weighed and measured him and he's now 21" and 8 lbs 1 oz. Making good progress. We like growing babies.
Our other good milestone today was that Jack passed his speech therapy. He finally ate without a tantrum in front of the therapist this morning and she said he was doing great and could probably even take more than we were giving him. Unless he starts having problems, she doesn't have to come back and we are officially done with the tube. It's so nice to only have to do basically 2 feedings every 3 hours (pump and bottle feed) rather than 3 (pump, bottle feed, then tube feed).
