Owen is doing well today. He gained 10 more grams. His white blood count is back to normal and he's generating his own blood at a good rate. He's still at 25 on the ventilator, but hopefully his gas levels will be good in the early morning, and then they'll start the steroid course of treatment soon. After three days of the steroid, they'll see how he does off the ventilator. We've been able to do kangaroo care three days in a row now; that's a first. They did his eye test today. It is a little worse than the one on Monday, but not bad enough at this point that they're referring him to the other Dr at Kosair. They will continue to look at it every seven days, if it continues to progress, then they will take him to kosair to be assessed for needs with surgery.
