Packing out.

YEAH!! Today is a big day. We get to have the packing taken out and soon after we will be discharged. It seems a little early for that, but he's really doing well and we're ready to get out of here. This morning the nurses came in around 7:30 a.m. It took about 20 seconds. Bauer voiced his opinion about the whole thing very quick, but we rocked him back to sleep within about 10 minutes. He did great and was looking even better by the time we left.
We're hoping now the feeding will start going a little smoother.

From last night until about 5:00 a.m. he hadn't taken a lot of fluids, but between 7:30 and 9:30 he took in about 7 oz. He would only take the spoon, but I'm sure by tomorrow we'll be on the sippy a little more. Just know that when you get to this point you WILL be able to get them to eat somehow. Cup, syringe, Ross Nipple, Sippy Cup, and I've even had a friend tell me she used a folded paper cup. You just use whatever works!! And worst-case scenario they have to hook them back up to give fluid through an IV. But they will get the calories they need.

He's breathing better out of his nose now too.

And we finally got a roommate late last night. But they left by about 7:00 a.m. We were so happy to have the single room as long as we did.
