Eric is doing very well. He is up to 2 lbs. 13 1/2 oz. Huge huh?!! He is growing so well and will need a haircut soon!! The most exciting news is that he was able to be switched to Nasal Cannula, which is one step away from needing no help with his breathing at all. Such a big switch from a week and a half ago!! Eric's heart rate has also come down. It turned out most of that was caused by him hating the Nasal CPAP. The prongs that go up the nose on that are so long they were aggitating him and Monday night he even had a little bloody nose from them. That is why they tried him on the nasal cannula, to see if the shorter prongs would be better for him and without the aggitation maybe he would need less help. They were right, and he is doing beautifully with the Cannula.

I will try to put more pictures on soon. I know everyone is waiting.
