New Will pictures and updates! 4 weeks old today!

Will has continued to do so well. He had a really quiet weekend as well. He has continued to do well with the conventional vent and his feedings.

He has done so well with the conventional vent that there is talk of extubating him tomorrow morning. That means he would come off the ventilator. No tube down his throat! They are planning on trying tomorrow morning. Some babies do have to go back on the ventilators, but we are hoping Will can stay off. He will move to what they call CPAP, which is where he has a little tube up each nostril that will provide him a little pressure support for his lungs. We're keeping our fingers crossed it goes well! It's a little scary to think about!

He weighed 2 lbs 8 ounces today and is 14 1/4 inches long.

And now pictures of Will!

Will, looking very concerned about something. I wish we could read his mind!
Will loves to sleep with his arms up.
Bright eyed and bushy tailed picture of Will!
Chill Will, all stretched out for his nap.

Nestled down in the rolls in his bed.
I was having a mother-son chat with Will in this picture. I think he was really listening to me, don't you?
Giving sweet Will some sugar!
I think Will was saying, "Mom, not another picture!"
Another picture of Will with his eyes open. He seems to be opening them more and more each day.
