The weather in DC changes every day. Yesterday it was warm (80) with rain late in the day. Today it was drizzling rain this morning and the high is now ~60. Oh yeah, it is also very windy. Basically it is a chilly, overcast Sunday afternoon. The kind of weather that just makes you want to stay in bed. Thank goodness Reed is here or I think the weather would get the best of Brittany and me. Fortunately, the weather has not affected his mood in the least.
Brittany and I visited Gaines this morning and then again after lunch. He has regained the little bit of weight he had lost. He is now 3 pounds 11 ounces and his oxygen requirements are between 28-30%. He has plateaued on the amount of milk he can currently recieve at each feeding (34 cc's). As he grows, the amount of milk he can recieve will become more. Since he can not receive any more than 34 cc's of milk per feeding, the nurses are supplementing the milk with extra calories. Hopefully he will continue to gain weight.
Please continue to pray for Gaines...and maybe Brittany and me as we plan to keep Reed out of the weather and indoors the rest of the afternoon.
