Mommy and Daddy Time
Both Andy and Janet have now gotten to feed Lincoln his bottle. He’s a real champ with all of this. The doctors and nurses indicated that they will need to watch over the next couple of days to be certain he is not overworking himself on the bottle, which could cause him to lose weight. No dice because today he is 3 weeks old and has gained a full pound over his birth weight to 3lbs 14 oz. The feeding tube is still in, and I believe they’re doing 2 bottle feedings and 4 tube feedings. The physical therapist came by to do a test on Lincoln with his reflexes and reactions. He passed with flying colors and was even able to hold his head up.
Here are some new pictures that gave me a great big shiny smile this morning:
