Evening update (Friday 12/5)

No head circumference update yet. Nurse Maureen reports that Max has had a few desats (remember that he's off of his canula now).

The big news of course is that Max delivered another Christmas Stool for us at his 9:00 PM diaper change. He is "appropriately annoyed" with Nurse Maureen when she changes his diaper. His caffeine dose is now delivered orally, mixed in with his milk.

Just to be clear: Max, a newborn infant, is getting a couple of lattes per day. We can laugh about it now, but of course it's an important therapeutic treatment for preemies who have trouble remembering to breath.

Max passed another milestone, completing his sixth week in the NICU.
