Tuesday, June 15th was a good day for the boys. I have put some pictures up of Calvin. I was waiting until I could get good pictures of both of them, but Calvin did so well today I thought he deserved to go first. He was taken off of all oxygen today, he is just in room air with no assistance of any kind. He took his whole feeding this morning by bottle from the nurse as well as this evening's feeding from me. They even went up to 23 ml today. He will move up to three bottle feedings a day tomorrow. Austin is still on the c-pap. They may try to begin weaning him off tomorrow by giving him the canula for part of the day. He is having more of an issue with digesting his feedings. They have put his feedings on a pump that continuously give's him food slowly rather than giving him feedings every three hours. He seemed to be tolerating that better this evening than he had been tolerating the feedings as they were before.
