The biggest news this week is Evan was extubated Saturday afternoon. He had been on a ventilator for nearly two weeks so it is good to see him back on his nasal CPAP. I think he will be a much happier little boy without the vent tube stuck down his throat. Let’s pray that Evan is able to stay off the ventilator.
Aiden’s big news is that he has started to take a bottle this last week. He has not quit mastered feeding from a bottle though. He’s a natural at sucking on the nipple but hasn’t figured out just yet what to do with the milk. His little mouth gets full of milk and he ends up spitting most of it out. I bet he gets the hang of it here in the next week or two.
The doctors are going to do another round of tests on Aiden to see if his urinary tract infection has cleared up completely and if his liver enzymes have returned to normal levels on Monday. Aiden has been acting really well and does not look jaundice so we are optimistic that the tests are going to come back with good results.

Evan didn't like the vent tube at all but at least it gave him something to suck on all the time.
Aiden loves sucking on his pacifier. Here Janel flys it into Aiden's mouth.

Now that Evan is back on a CPAP, he can use a pacifier. He too loves them!
