|Sleeping after his noon feeding.|
While Mr. B was having his stress test, I was at the hospital visiting with the little prince. He has gained a pound since his birth on August 19. His red blood cell count is up, which is more good news. He is still having a problem with reflux, which I've read is a common gastrointestinal problem in premature infants. When babies are bigger and don't use a feeding tube, burping helps with this problem. For now, his feeding time is being lengthened from 60 minutes to 90 minutes to give him more time to digest. This is just another issue that will probably go away as Aulay's organs develop.
Today I'm creating another baby blanket, or at least cutting it out of fabric. This time I'm making a UT fleece blanket. The wee one will need it for his incubator before the game on September 27, when Texas plays KU. Since both of Aulay's parents are graduates of UT, I have a feeling that Hook 'em will be part of his vocabulary.
