Morning Update

Braden has done well this morning. The doctors made the call during rounds this morning to start feeding him with his bottle again.

He took 45 cc's in 10 minutes or so! It was the fastest that he has ever drank his bottle. There was only 50 cc's in the bottle and we are going to build back to 70 cc's today over the course of the next couple of feeds. He got a little fussy after chugging so fast but he calmed down after ten minutes. There was no throwing up this time which was a huge relief. If he continues to eat without spitting up mass quantities like before that would be a huge step in the right direction today. It also would mean that the reflux meds are doing their job.


p.s. Braden said that he wishes his team the Chicago Bears good luck today as the play the much improved Detroit Lions. The only two Lions fans he knows are "Uncle" Joe Benson and Dennis Eisele. He said he is in for $100 bet and will give you 3 1/2 points. I don't know where he learns this stuff...
