So the doctor had recently told me that Brody would most likely be going home this coming Monday with the feeding tube. However, he came in yesterday to talk to me and had changed his mind. He didn't realize Brody was still premature because of how big he was. He said he just figured he was past our due date. He says that there is no need to rush Brody to go home at this point, that he can stay there and keep getting stronger for a few more weeks. So we are continuing to work on his oral feedings. He is doing a little better than before, he averages 1-2 whole bottles per day. He is gaining weight like crazy, which is good. He's now up to 6 pounds 8 ounces, and his face is really filling in. No talk so far about a repeat MRI to check mental status. He did pass his hearing test so that's a definite plus!!
