2 weeks old

Tiberius is two weeks old today, where did the time go? He is an amazing lil' peanut and holding his own! He is now back on feedings and rocking it out starting tonight at 8pm they are going to be giving him 21mils every 3hours which is Full feedings for his weight! He also now weighs 3lbs which is great since at one point he was down to 2lbs 6oz. Other then that he is the same breathing on his own and just a chilled relax little man. He does have a few heart rates dips each day but he brings it right back up on his own with no help from the nurses! When I go and visit we do kangaroo care (skin to skin) and he seems to love it the last few times he licks me while laying there, its funny he's like a little kitty.
He is also now wearing clothes!!!

We asked the doctor when they were thinking of transferring him to the hospital near us and they said more then likely beginning of next week. The reason they dont want to do it now is because his PDA is not fully closed and they dont want to transfer him and then he end up needing surgery (which they dont think he will but better safe then sorry) and having to be sent back up to the University hospital. So the Dr wants a few more days to keep an eye on the PDA and then once he is more certain he wont need surgery then they'll transfer.

Love to all,
