Three Weeks Old

Brandt is three weeks old today!  He’s up to 3 lb 13 oz.  When he first started taking milk two weeks ago, he got 2 mL; today, he reached the full feeding amount for his gestational age – just over an ounce.  Since his nutritional needs are now met by breastmilk (plus a fortifier to supply extra calories and calcium), he no longer needs IV fluids and had his PICC line taken out of his arm today.  Now his only tubes are the nasal cannula for oxygen and the feeding tube.  Hooray!
