So today Edmund got to breastfeed, and it must be said that he took to it much better than the bottle!! In fact, he did so well, that after guesstimating how much he might have gotten,
Dr. Whitman said we didn't need to supplement it with additional food!! He was pacing himself and sucking and swallowing beautifully!! We're going to nurse again this evening, and if that goes well, we'll do even more tomorrow. Edmund and I were praising God for taking us back to his design today and are praying it continues to go well!!
He's also down to .3ml every 8 hours on his methadone. That might have happened yesterday actually. Next step will likely be every 12 hours instead of 8. He's doing great with that; so far no withdrawal symptoms to speak of.
Thanks for your continued prayers!
Dennis, Heidi, and Edmund
