Slow going…

The Operation was successful yesterday – Oliver came back up at 1:30pm and we sat with him until he came round – not until nearly 6pm !!

He took his first feed (20ml) at 6pm and given it was such a small amount, it was gone in no time.

After which he began smiling and cooing at us – he hasn’t done this for over one week so it was wonderful to see.

His second feed at 9pm wasn’t quite so successful, as he unloaded pretty much all of the 40ml that we gave him :-(.  Still, we can’t expect too much so early on – is still hard to see him still being sicky.

We left him to sleep at about 10pm and when we went in this morning, he had taken on 20ml at 6am, since the staff had let him sleep rather than wake him – reasoning being to allow his tummy chance to right itself without having milk forced on it.

He took 40 ml at 9am and it is now 10am, and it stayed down which is great.  He has also begun flatulating suggesting that the Rust pipework is all still in proper functioning order 🙂

Don’t think we will be coming home today now, since the sickyness reset the system – basically, he has to be taking 85ml without issue before they will consider him fit to return home.

More later…..
