The results of the PCG are in and the doctors have confirmed Miller's reflux. It's not an unexpected development and we are satisfied to know that his occasional bradycardia and desaturation can be attributed to this very treatable condition. As such, Miller started his reflux meds today and we hope to see some improvement sometime this week.
They've also put him back on his nasal canulla. Mom wasn't real thrilled about this move, but the doctors want to provide Miller with some consistent airflow while his reflux medication takes effect.
The good news is that Miller continues to scarf down his bottles and put on weight. As of today, he's 5 lbs 6 ozs. He's taking about 70 cc's of milk every three hours but if we're a little late with his bottle everything is fair game. So far, Miller has tried to eat his hands, his hat, his canulla, his blanket, Mom's arm, and Dad's nose.
As for our time in the NICU, we think we're in the home stretch. We have a "room in" appointment for Tuesday and we hope to keep it. This means Miller could possibly come home on Thursday. We're keeping our fingers crossed.
Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers.
