I am in the NICU waiting room after just seeing Samuel. He is looking good. They gave him another round of lasix today so that he isn't retaining too much fluid. They also switched off the suction for his stomach tube because the fluids coming out were finally clear. This is really good news since that means they will attempt feeding him in a few days.
I talked to the nurse practitioner and she said the next weening would be the nitrous oxide.
Thanks for praying. Happy New Year everyone!
