About the same...


Matthew is doing well and is continuing to grow. He is still on the ventilator but it is their hope to put him on CPAP tomorrow. Unfortunately, he hasn't had a bowel movement in awhile so they gave him a gastrograffin enema today. This is just like the one they gave him last week that worked. They did increase his feedings to 12 cc's or ml's every 3 hours. (5 cc's or ml's is equal to one teaspoon). He tolerated it fairly well, with only one episode of having residuals.

He had an ultrasound done on his head today along with another abdominal x-ray. The doctor who is taking care of him is out today, so I hope to talk to her tomorrow regarding the results of all the tests and for what this means with him not having bowel movements on his own.

I'll keep you posted.
