WHOA! (76 days)

What a difference a day makes! Bryce looked so good today that I was a little worried they'd accidentally switched him with another, very similar looking baby. He's way down on the breathing support: on a 1/4L of flow at 21-22% oxygen (21% is room air) he's been able to maintain oxygen saturation in the mid-90s. This bodes well for the condition of his lungs, which are often fragile in preemies due to the necessary evil of mechanical ventilation when the lungs are still developing.

Also, Bryce has dispelled any lingering doubts we had about whether he's aware of mealtimes, but if you don't believe me, just watch the video below. He is chomping at the bit to start nursing, and he's going to get his wish tomorrow at 2PM!
