Baby update

Tiny is doing fairly well.  We got to meet the cardiologist today.  That doctor seems to think that the neonatologists are making the heart trouble out to be a bigger problem than it is.  It IS a problem and needs medication, but he's pretty sure that Tiny will only need medication for a few months.  He said the thickening in the walls is not as big as the other doctors had seemed to indicate.

The Bili lights went off today!  

Tiny's feedings have changed from 3oz every 3 hours to 3oz on demand (every 3-4 hours).

He's still on oxygen because he's not quite absorbing it right.  Once they're able to wean him off of the oxygen the doctors will start talking (again) about how soon he'll go home.  Today the doctor said 2-3 days, or weeks, or more...
