Getting Better day by day
It is truly incredible how fast Jackson is getting better. The doctors said they have never had a baby that has gotten better so quickly in the unit, he is truly a miracle baby. My husband and I have learned that they do NOT like to give you a day when you will be bringing your baby home no matter how many times you ask them, but I can tell it is getting closer.
Jackson is breast feeding (which has been very difficult for me because I am not producing enough milk for him to eat and I have to supplement), being moved to an open air crib, scheduled for his circumcision, and we were asked to bring his car seat in for his breathing test. All NICU babies have to have a 2 hour test in their car seat to make sure they can breath with out strain before they are able to come home.
Here are some recent pictures of Jackson. As of today Jackson is on no IV fluids, foods, or medication of any kind.
