Evening update (Saturday 1/24)

Max enjoyed another quiet day and night. Max continues to tolerate his feeds; he's still getting his feeding over 105 minutes, but the NICU have increased the volume that they're feeding him. He is after all more than eight pounds now. Max held Carolyn at the NICU this evening by slyly pulling off all of his leads just as she was leaving, and also demanding a fresh diaper.

Carolyn tells me that since Max's MRI showed no PVL the doctors and nurses seem to have a different attitude towards him. Perhaps it's merely our perception, but it seems that the NICU team now see that Max could grow up into a normal healthy boy (something we never doubted).
