I want milk!
Lincoln is now getting 24 cc's of formula. He has been only taking about half of that amount and he has started to throw up after a meal every once in a while. The formula they are giving him is called Pregestamil. It's a low fat pre-digested formula that smells terrible and tastes worse. We think he is getting tired of eating that stuff so he never finishes his meal...so they have to give what ever he doesn't eat by bottle through an NG tube. Pray that he tolerates his feeding because they want to get to 45 cc's before they can start getting him off his IV medication...and he does not like it! He wants milk but it will have to wait a month or two. Pray also that he does not have any trouble keeping it down. The Dr's have ordered that his chest tubes be removed today....PTL! This will end a lot of pain he has been in and we will finally be able to hold him for the first time. Continue to pray for his heart, blood pressures and lungs that they will all work together like they should. Pray for NO water on his lungs and for the Chylothorax to continue to heal so they can give him milk soon. Thanks for all your prayers and support...we will talk to you later...we love you all! J&K
