3 Months Old!

Jaxon is doing really well. His kidneys are just fine. He had an x-ray of his chest and will have his breathing monitored overnight. He only uses the pump overnight. After I practiced bottle-feeding with him, we fed him via gravity through his NG tube for about 15 mins and he did just fine. We really think his diuretic really contributed to his vomitting. His sodium level finally got better at his last test, but his potassium is still a bit high - they will continue to monitor. His Reglan seems to be helping greatly. Jax now weighs 6lbs, 4oz - he's gained almost a pound!

Since I can't have professional photos of the boys done for their 3 month old birthdays today, I tried to snap a few of them together. Jaxon was not having it since he had just had his chest x-ray and wanted to sleep!

Jax then hit him in the face and made him cry...bully!!

Can you blame Jax? Brady was trying to wake him up. If soemone tried to wake me up after a long, hard day, I might hit them too!
