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 he’s now at 2285 grams, or 5.03 pounds. He’s maintaining his weight; he’s 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 we’re lining up for Aaron to go home in about 2 weeks.

Kathleen and I will be going home this (Monday) afternoon. We’ll return to SF on Thursday.

Two weeks! We can make it!

Love, Kevin & Kathleen
