He said that Seth is doing great. He was astounded that he eats so much. He said most babies he sees eat 1.5 - 2 oz. while Seth eats 2.5 - 3 oz. of milk. I'm pretty sure that he sees many tiny, premature, or sickly babies with unhealthy appetites, or maybe our baby is just like his dad.
We also received news that answered our prayers! Seth is scheduled to have surgery on Thursday. He didn't have any other details, but he knew they had decided to do it on that day. This is important news to us because we were told that the surgery wouldn't happen on the Fourth (Wednesday), or Friday through Monday due to decreased staff at the hospital. If they'd pushed us to next week it would mean many more days to travel for feedings and spending additional nights in a hospital chair.
This means that if the recovery goes well that Seth could be home in 7 - 10 days. I can't think of news that would've been better at this point! We will be updating the blog each time we get new information.
