On a brighter note, we found out that Logan is now back up to his birth weight of 1 lb. 7 ozs. and Landon has actually gained a good amount of weight and is up to 1 lb. 14 ozs.!! Logan, our little trooper, is still on his feeds and was bumped up to 2.9 mL every 3 hours. He is certainly enjoying his feedings as he had a great time pooping all over my finger the other day when I was changing his diaper!! I can honestly say I never thought I would be so happy to have my son poop on me but it's always a good sign when they are having bowel movements because it means their plumbing, so to speak, is working well!! Unfortunately, Landon continues to struggle with tolerating his feeds and they had to stop them overnight. They tried again late this afternoon so we're crossing our fingers for good news tomorrow morning.
Landon is still on the oscillating ventilator but the doctors are slowly weaning his settings and hoping to have him back on the regular vent within the next day or so. Logan was having a little bit of trouble with his breathing today and they had to push up his vent settings to compensate for it. I was really surprised because he's been doing so well with everything for the last week or two. Well, another day behind us, another minor obstacle overcome.
