I talked with Kathleen by phone this afternoon.
Aarons feeds are up to 17cc every 2 hours now; they were 15cc per hour.
Kathleen was able to hold Aaron for about 40 minutes this morning, and of course, she was just glowing about it. Shell be going to a Postpartum Depression class this afternoon. Not that shes having much trouble in that department; its just that the class is being offered, and shes available to go.
It sounds as though Aarons little neighbor, 25-weeker James is having a rough time. Hes been having trouble keeping his blood oxygenation level up for the past several days, even though hes on maximum settings on the ventilator. Hes on constant watch now, and the doctors have been giving his parents George and Kerry some not-too-encouraging assessments of things. Lets keep James lifted up.
