Milo, Sans Cannula
Yesterday Elaine and I were very happy and surprised to see that Milo was taken off of his cannula completely. That's right, no oxygen assistance at all! He's made it just about 24 hours with no problems, and his oxygen saturation has remained higher than I've ever seen it on a consistent basis (except for a couple moments during his feedings). The diuretics are also working their magic and Milo has trimmed down a bit -- he's 6 lbs 4 ozs today. Maddy is doing well and packing on the weight -- she's 5 lbs 15 ozs today. Look for her to get to the big 6 lb mark tomorrow. Hard to believe they're only a few ounces apart, eh?
