I woke up this morning (finally got a few hours of sleep! yay!) and went to see Oliver in the NICU, and got the best birthday present: Oliver was off oxygen! We thought it would take quite a bit longer.
All of his vitals have been stable now and the doctor is pretty confident that as soon as the antibiotics are done, he'll be sent home! All the nurses say they can't believe he's sick - he is quite the screamer for having lung problems!
And even better news was that he can now eat - he went about 24 hours with no food at all. We are working on breastfeeding, but it's pretty hard right now with everything else he's going through. So he also has a feeding tube that we can feed him with - it's just a tiny tube that goes in his mouth and down into his tummy. He can't even feel it now.
So hopefully the next week will be uneventful and Oli will be at home very soon.
Thank you for all your thoughts and encouraging words!
