Eating like a champ

Roscoe's feedings have been improving over the past few days since his surgery. Last night he set a new personal record by eating 50mL in one feeding. He hasn't gained much more weight because they've had him on a diuretic, and they've had him on a diuretic because he got a blood transfusion on Thursday. He got the blood transfusion because his red blood cell count dropped from 33 to 28 after the surgery (which they said is normal) and in a baby his size they want it to stay above 30.

Overall, Roscoe seems to have more energy and be less cranky than he has been the past 2 weeks, so all of these are good signs. God is blessing Roscoe.
