Joshua is doing as well as a preemie ever could. He is so strong and we are so proud of how well he is doing. Since he was only 30 weeks, and there were some complications with the delivery (an abruption), the hospital we delivered at could not give him the total care he needed, so they did transfer him to a hospital that has a NNICU. He has been doing so well in this NNICU that they have already removed all assisted breathing and he is breathing completely on his own, now. He was a little jaundice yesterday and they were planning to treat him with light therapy late today or tomorrow, but his levels today turned out normal. He's even had two poopies (which may explain why his BR levels went down)! He has lost some weight (which is still normal) and he now weighs 3 lbs 5 oz. But, while he is not the biggest preemie there in the NNICU, they say is he definitely the biggest 30 week old preemie they've got. Also, we found out how long he measures in at: 15 inches! We are very proud of him and his accomplishments thus far and are very optimistic for the future.
Here are some pictures of Joshua that I took last night in his new little home. Since these pictures were taken, the breathing apparatus on/in his nose has been removed.
