Sam got his first bottle this morning!

I arrived back at the hospital around 8:30 this morning. I noticed right away that we'd lost another machine! He is off the high flow oxygen now and just on regular oxygen. They even turned that down some more and his saturation level has stayed at 100 for the last hour. This means he got to eat! We warmed up some of the breastmilk I'd been freezing and Travis arrived just in time to help me feed him. We still can't hold him, but this was pretty good. He ate 2 ounces, burped, and is conked out right now. They haven't even done rounds yet this morning, but I was too excited to wait to share our good news!

Way to go, Sam!!
