Update on Chandler

Lacie asked me to update every one on the latest with Chandler, because she is being kept very busy with her touch times and then running back to the Ronald McDonald house to pump, grab a bite to eat, and then head back to the hospital. The last few days there have been several exciting things happen. On Saturday, Lacie got to give Chandler his first bath. He also got to get his catheter out on that day, so that means he now gets to get his diaper changed. He weighed in at 4 lbs, 7 oz. but they said that some of that was fluids. He was starting to move around a lot more and even had to be sedated more for his bath so that he wouldn't move around too much.

Today has been another big day for Chandler. Last night he got a pic line to replace the line that went into his belly button, so that will be better. They were able to change his resprator today and when they are sure that he can breathe on his own they will put him on a c pap. He also got to have his first breast milk today for lunch, but he was unable to digest it, so they will have to try again later. They moved Lacie's touch times from every 4 hours to every 3 hours since he is being fed, so things will get even more hectic. They also did a follow up EEG today to look at brain activity. Hopefully they will have the results back on that in the morning. Lacie has some pictures she hopes to post soon.
