Humpty Dumpty Surgery Update: Day 3 - 9:20am

We finally got the go ahead on fluids this morning.  Bennett sucked down his one ounce of Pedialyte in 3 minutes flat.  Poor guy is hungry.

The plan is to give him 1 oz of Pedialyte at 9am, 12pm and 3pm.

If he handles those well (no vomiting and good poops), we will try 1 oz of formula at the 6pm feed.  Then, every three hours, we will begin increasing his formula by 15ml until he is back to his regular 3oz.

All is well as of now.  We expect that within 24 hours or so, he should be eating his normal amount.

Our prayer is his feedings will go smoothly.  If they do, we may be out of here by Monday!
