Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers, we appreciate them so much! We are still here in NICU, hoping that something will show up as the reason for Timothy refusing to eat. He is on medication for acid reflux right now, but it doesn't seem to be helping his appetite. The doctor is changing his medication in hopes to find the right combination to ease the burning and encourage him to swallow more than just a half-ounce at every feeding.
After we try to get down as much as he can stand, Timothy usually crashes out on daddy for some extra snuggles (it also helps his tummy if we keep him upright).
Timothy is now 7 lbs, 5.5 oz. He is almost back up to his birth weight and steadily going up now that he gets most of his food through the feeding tube.
Timothy now has the upgraded crib. It has a crank at the end that allows the nurse to raise his head up much higher than the last bed he was in. This helps keeps the food down in his tummy. He looks so tiny in this crib compared to the last one he was in!
