So far so good...

Today I was able to feed Ezra twice. Both times it was just about 1 to 2 teaspoons full of that predigested formula but he did so much better today than last Sunday. And since he started nearly 12 hours ago, he has only had one very little spit up, which isn't much to worry about. This is great news! He will continue on this feeding schedule of just a little bit of formula every 4 hours just to stimulate his intestines, and we will gradually work the feedings up. So far so good and we are so very happy at his progress...After 3 weeks of nothing in his tummy (just the lipids and TPN that go straight into his blood stream) he is anxious to eat. He is also 4 pounds, 8 ounces already. He is getting to be a "plump" kid :).

Good news, Tirsa! Here's hoping that he continues to keep everything down, and that he'll soon poop. Hopefully someday you'll look back and think, "I wanted him to poop? Now's he's got nasty diapers three times a day!" We're keeping your family in our prayers. - Tiff and Mark

Hurray Ezra! He is now up to Nicole's birthweight. I hope he continues to handle the food well and he'll be strong enough to come home soon!
