No more oxygen

Great news today- Collin's off of his oxygen!  He even kept his levels at a good rate while feeding and that is usually hard for little babies.  It was good to see him without the oxygen tubes on his face and this is a big step toward coming home.  He fed well in the morning and then I was able to feed him and he ate really well.  We came back for the next feeding and he was sleepy, sleepy, sleepy and wouldn't wake up to feed, so we had to tube feed him.  I took his temperature and it was a bit high so they said if he had one more high temp reading then they would start turning down his incubator.  He's heading in the right direction!
Miles and I were both able to go into the hospital today and it was really nice.  Mark, Lissa and their boys came out and played with Scotty and Grant so we could go and we really appreciate them.  The boys had so much fun with their cousins.  We were also able to get Scotty's birthday shopping done.  He'll be 4 on Tuesday- can you believe it???

He is so cute!!

Here he is getting his tube feeding.
