Rockstar feeder!

Brady has been taking all his bottles today, so they are removing his NG tube (the feeding tube that was in his nose). He's doing very well, so he's expected to be home by next weekend! The nurse said it could be any day after Wednesday, so we'll see when...

Jaxon's color looks a lot better, but the doctor said he wished the blood transfusion helped him more. He still needs more oxygen than they would like, and they heard the heart murmur again on Friday. The doctor said he wanted to see how Jax did over the weekend before talking more in depth about surgery. As of today the nurses didn't hear the murmur (great!) but his oxygen need is still there (not great). So we'll see what the doctor says tomorrow.

Jaxon - 3 lbs, 5 oz (Brady's original birth weight)
Brady - 4lbs, 11 oz

That would be so wonderful if Brady got to come home next week! And hopefully Jaxon does better this week, too.
