We Made it a Week

We survived the first week at home! I'm not sure if it's more impressive that Keegan survived it or that we've survived it. I'll post more tomorrow. I need to go lie down for a bit since I have to wake up in an hour and a half to feed him again. We're probably the only parents in the world that don't mind giving a bottle to our baby in the middle of the night...as long as it's a bottle and not a tube, we're very happy. The ng tube is out for good. He's sucking his bottles dry, and we're going to slowly start increasing the volume. Keegan weighed in at a whopping 6 pounds at clinic on Thursday. Hopefully he'll be taking close to 2 ounces with each bottle by the end of the weekend. Without the tube, you wouldn't know he had even been sick if he has clothes on. He will keep the central line (IV port) for about 14 more weeks and the subcutaneous catheter for giving him shots for another 4 to 6 weeks.

Ok, more tomorrow. I mean it this time. Sorry we've lagged in posts, but take it as a good sign! Thank you for continuing to lift Keegan up in prayer.
