Update on Colton

Colton's surgery went well.  Both surgeons were pleased with how things went.  He was back in the NICU within about 3 hours.  He was very sleepy and kept on the vent for several hours.  But, now he's off and back on his vapotherm.  His settings are a little higher than they were, but that was to be expected.  As soon as he acts hungry, they will restart feeding him.  They will start out with a low volumn and then quickly increase it back to where he was.

Seanie is hanging out on the vent.  The plan is to get him off it this week.  Gosh, I hope so.  He's been vented this time since Jan. 12th!  Poor kid!  He did get his feedings increased.  He is now eating over an ounce every 3 hours.  :)
