Yumm...Formula!

Keegan and I had a quiet but restless night. As many of you know, his ICU room window was covered by construction, so we literally were in a "cave". So, Keegan is now having to learn the difference between day and night - not an easy transition. He's also learning "hungry" and "full". These things should help him develop a better sleep pattern.

Today, he took 8 mililiters of formula by a bottle! That's pretty good for someone who just had his first taste of food yesterday. He then has to take the remaining 32 mililiters through the ng tube. He's working on it though. It's hard to like drinking when there's a tube down the back of your throat. Gray and I are working on mastering what meds Keegan is on and how to administer them. Everyone is still talking about going home on Friday, so we'll see what happens.

Thanks for all your prayers. They're working!!
