The only change that occurred today was increasing his feedings to 6 ml/hour from 5. He weighed in at 3 pounds 3.5 ounces. This is almost a pound more than when he entered the world!!! He is tolerating the CPAP but really wants it off (he told me). Kim held him in Kangaroo care today for over 2 hours!! This is awesome!!
Hudson's isolette had a makeover, courtesy of his mommy and his nurse. While Hudson was spending some quality time with his mom, the nurses changed his blanket underneath his bed to a Purdue blanket - Boiler up!!! His isolette cover is a fleece blanket that Kim made for it, complete with soccer, football and basketball balls. Hudson loved it so much, he slept great the entire time I was there today.
"I cry and they give me what I want! I like this gig." - Hudson
((notice the blanket propped by his mouth...that's so his pacifier doesn't fall out and his hands can be free...he's not spoiled or anything?! closer look below))
"If I freeze and pretend I'm asleep, maybe she'll go away" - Hudson
"Kangaroo care, why do that call me a kangaroo? My name is Hudson. It's called Hudson Care!" - Hudson
"Just when I think I can get some one on one time with Mommy, she puts that camera in my face!" - Hudson
"I think I'll just S -T-R-E-T-C-H on my new blanket! Don't tell Daddy, but I'm really more of a Hoo Hoo Hoosiers fan! I think Mommy was just trying to be nice to Daddy." - Hudson
"When's my food get here? I'll be waiting right here, they said I just need to gain a few more ounces and I can put some clothes on!" - Hudson
"They call it my special hat...well give me a not so special one that doesn't have this stupid nose thing" - Hudson
