When things start to happen they happen very quickly. Michael is continuing down the path to recovery. Yesterday his feeds were upped to 70ml, 30ml of that 70 is to be done by the bottle and the rest by the G-tube. Depending on Michael's mood he can do the 30 in a very short time and sometimes even looks around for more. At other times (tired or angry) he will not do more than 5 and gets very upset that we are not listening to him.

Other good news for Michael is that he has been moved out of the NICU and is now in the pediatric wing of the hospital. This gives mom and dad the chance to show the hospital that they have learned how to take care of him. The hospital requires both mom and dad to show that they can handle all of the challenges that Michael presents on a day to day basis before they will fill out any discharge papers. This step looks very promising towards Michael coming home sooner rather than later. However since NO discharge orders exist mom and dad are continuing on a day by day evaluation.

Because of this new turn of events postings to this carepage may become less scheduled. We will continue to update everyone when there is more news and we have time to get home to access the carepage.
