No More IVS !!

Joshua no longer has any IV's, his last one was removed this morning (Friday 12-11-09). He no longer needs antibiotics, or any other fluids. The only foreign object Joshua has is his feeding tube and his nasal cannula .
Joshua continues to work hard on his feeds using his bottle, but again we were told it's going to be a roller coaster. Last night Joshua consumed almost 20-25 cc, today he only took in less than 10cc. He is also throwing up more because of the stress of sucking on a bottle. He will eventually catch on, but it will take some time. We are still in NICU level 3, but Joshua is consider level 2 status.


  1. Joshua is a CDH superstar! :)
    The feeding WILL come with time, trust me! It is like a roller coaster, but well worth it to have our little ones!
    You guys are doing great! Home for Christmas?!? :)
    Hugs to all,

  2. Joshua, you are kicking some serious CDH bootie there little man! Great job! Remember to give Mom and Dad extra snuggles.

    Sending thoughts and prayers your way - always,

  3. So great Melissa and Jose. I bet you guys are so very delighted. Joshua you go boy you are one tough little boy!

  4. Keep up the good work Josh. All you have to do now is drink drink that milk,so you can be big and strong like your daddy(smile).Mel/Jose how much does he wieght.
