Hutton came off the oxygen yesterday and is doing great! In the afternoon they also started him on his bili blanket and now he is a little glow worm. We started breast feedings yesterday afternoon and the first two feedings he took one side and then got pooped out but the next two he took both sides like a champ. He was very alert yesterday afternoon so Grammy and Busha got to see his eyes; most of the time thought he just hangs out in is isolette and snoozes. It actually looks kinda divine...the snoozing.
I fed him at 9 pm last night and then skipped the midnight feeding so I could get some sleep. I hit the bed a little after 10, woke up once around 1 am to roll over and then didn't open my eyes until 3 am when I needed to be back upstairs. Sleep. It was awesome!
I will be discharged this afternoon. Collin is going to go into work and I'll be setting up camp in Hutt's room until he is able to go home. Plans are day-by-day at this point. Hutt will have his last dose of antibiotics tonight and then if his bili counts stay down he might be able to leave by the end of the week.
I'll probably post more this afternoon.
