More of the same


Matthew continues to be about the same. His CRP levels continue to fall, so they're talking about resuming his feedings on friday and extubating him on saturday or sunday. They took his skin temperature probe off today since he's doing a good job at maintaining his body temperature. They usually don't do that until the babies reach 1500g (he's only 1360g or about 3lbs). This means we'll finally get to start putting some clothes on him.

They've started giving him a steroid inhaler to help alleviate swelling in his lungs. This should help his transition off of the ventilator.
