I didn't want to ge the camp-out thread off topic so I'll just start a new one.

How is Junior doing? How long do you expect him to be in the hospital? I sure hope all is going well.

Hey! Sorry I didn't see this until now - thanks for asking about him.

He's doing great! No IVs. oxygen, etc. & he is in a "normal" crib now (i.e., he's out of his "Isolet"). He is taking a bottle well at least two feedings per day and is begining to attempt nursing directly (he's getting his mother's milk exclusively) - hopefully we will get rid of the feeding tube altogether in the next day or two. He is up to 4 pounds, 11.6 ounces and gaining about an ounce per day. All of his tests and labwork look great.

Lord willing, he'll get to come home by the end of the month. We can't wait!

Just to give you an idea of how he's been growing and how much better he looks now, here he is on 9/21:



and here he is on 10/7:
