Okay, begrudgingly I will defer to the power of the c-pap machine.
Ace has had 1 apnea in 2 days. This is wonderful, and absolutely fantastic progress. He had the apnea when the nurse gave him his pacifier - I guess he zones out and forgets to breathe when he has something to suck on... kinda puts the feeding back a while. He is already up to 3 pounds, 15 ounces, so we may hit 4 pounds today. He's not breathing fast, and his heart isn't racing like it was a few days ago. He's had a few desats (see dictionary from a few days ago) but that could be caused by the oxygen monitor being a little wonky. It happens.
I'm so proud of him, he's being so good. He's sleeping better, and there's nothing more serene than watching him sleep. I love it. I'm just so proud!
One more week till they start trying him on the bottle. I can't wait to feed my son.
He's 4 weeks old today (not quite the same as a month, which he'll be on Tuesday). I didn't think I'd make it this far. It's not been quite as bad as I thought.
