James did well on the cookie swallow!
At the last minute a friend offered to babysit Lydia and Bennet so I could be at the test and speak with the feeding therapist. I also got to talk to the nurse practitioner, the doctor and James' nurse. My little boy is doing really well and I'm so proud of him!
They'll be starting him on bottles right away.
Please pray that he will continue to do well with bottle feedings. Once he is taking 8 full bottles a day he will be able to come home. That's our next goal.
Funny incident of note: James is now in size 2 diapers because he weighs 11lbs 8oz. His nurse had to go up to the pediatrics floor to get diapers big enough to fit him because the NICU doesn't stock diapers bigger than size 1. Come on, that's funny.
