As of last night, Jacob was up to 4 lbs 5 oz! He is growing really well, praise God.
He has had some setbacks with his feedings, however. They went back to tube feeding for the time being because he hasn’t got the suck-swallow-breathe thing working yet. He’ll start trying the bottle again in the next few days.
He seems to be doing well keeping his temperature up. They’ll work him a little harder on that once he has mastered eating.
Please keep praying, we are making progress! Jacob is a feisty little thing, and he gives the nurses a run for their money. He would have been 34 weeks gestation tomorrow. It’s hard to believe he could have had six more weeks in my belly…and we’ve already had him for a month now.
