Comfortable and Happy

Alisha and I returned from our anniversary, where we went to Lake Tahoe for 2 days and 1 night (we stayed here). Roscoe has seemed much more comfortable for the past few days since he's ramped up to full feedings (75mL). He has a feeding tube in, but his PICC line is removed. He eats anywhere from 10mL to 40mL by mouth, then the rest of his feeding they deliver through the feeding tube.

Overall he's seemed much less cranky and generally more comfortable. He's even been sleeping for longer stretches, which is a "big boy" behavior. Through the night sometimes the nurses said he'll sleep for 5 hours, then during the day he'll take 2-3 hour naps. This is a great improvement over his previous pattern of only sleeping 1-2 hours at a time. The more he sleeps, the more he'll grow! His last measurement showed him at 19.2 inches long and 6lb 4oz+.

Today we'll be going to the hospital to catch up on some time with Roscoe, so we'll hopefully get some pictures and videos to share.


  1. I love the way you two are looking into each other's eyes....

  2. I was wondering if you guys would go to Tahoe. Glad you got a little vacation time in.
    Love you!
