Little York is doing really well... but still not home! He is eating like a little pig (YAY) and breathing fine on his own. Everyone in the NICU is amazed at how developed his lungs are... most babies born at 34 weeks have difficulty breathing on their own. We are so lucky that wasn't York's case. The only obstacle that we face is waiting for little man to maintain his body temperature on his own. Last night after his bath he couldn't seem to keep temperature at 98 degrees. But the good news is that he was able to maintain a good temperature throughout that day... So as he accumulates more fat it will be easier to maintain his temperature. He has lost down to 4 lbs 5 ounces and is holding steady there. He has been eating between 40-50 cc's so he should begin gaining weight soon. We are still hoping and praying to have him home by Christmas. The doc said that he must maintain his temperature for a full 48 hours and then he will be released! Thanks again all of you prayer warriors! It's working!
