Today, with update 80, Aaron is 90 days old (and 37 weeks gestational age).
Aaron continues to do well on his on-demand feeding. His weight was up 5 grams today, so hes now at 2285 grams, or 5.03 pounds. Hes maintaining his weight; hes meeting his challenge of going without any gavage feeds.
His oxygen requirements continue to decrease. He was at 26% oxygen this morning as he was breast feeding (ambient air is 21%).
It looks like were lining up for Aaron to go home in about 2 weeks.
Kathleen and I will be going home this (Monday) afternoon. Well return to SF on Thursday.
Two weeks! We can make it!
Love, Kevin & Kathleen
