Since the last entry Adam has come on leaps & bounds. He is on antibiotics for his secretions and an eye infection which both seem to be getting better with each day plus he is still receiving anti-convulsion medicine. His milk has been increased to 47ml every 3 hours, this is given to him through his nose tube and he is digesting it well so hopefully he’ll have put a bit of weight on at his next weigh in!
Over the last few days Adam has generally been alot more awake and alert, looking around and taking in his surroundings. We have tried him with a dummy to help develop his sucking action, he does have two or three sucks before getting bored and spitting it out. Today he did suck his thumb for a short time while being fed which is a really positive sign.
