16 weeks

Maybe this doesn't look comfortable, but let sleeping Rhys lie...

Oh yeah, I got my daddy trained!

It's hard work being so cute!

I'm not always such an angel.
Oh my, what is this goodness??

Rhys was 16 weeks yesterday. He has been awake since I got here today and has been quite a good boy. They lowered his PEEP to 6 today! Way to go Rhys! The doctors were waiting on him to have a lower oxygen requirement, but one of the nurses pointed out that this IS his oxygen requirement and has been since his birth. So, they tried it this morning and so far so good. I don't think he even noticed. His oxygen has been at 58% since I got here today. Woohoo! We're hoping this continues.

Daddy got to give him a bath tonight and (speaking of candy) Rhys enjoyed his first dum-dum sucker. Boy did he like it! His feeds are at 45cc (1.5 ounces) and his dye test on his ureter came back clean. I will have Cody post new pictures later.
