Well Lucas decided to go out in style on the 5th day of his life. He started maintaining his temperature on his own earlier today so the nurses moved him from a radiant warmer to a crib. The nurses refer to it as a Big Boy Bed. We also call it Milestone #2!
To go home, Lucas needs to breath on his own, be able to maintain his own temperature in an open crib, and eat and gain wait. Milestones #1 and #2 are now already complete! Of course, Milestone #3 – eating – should be a little more difficult for our little miracle, but at this point, I wouldn’t put anything past him. 🙂
Wow, Day 5 has been HUGE!
