Nicholas had another good day. The speech therapist came by to do his bottle feed and evaluate his swallowing. He is fine. He sucks and swallows well just drools a little on the sides of his mouth. No big deal. His nurse said he puts some other babies to shame with his bottle skills. He took his full feed during both of his bottle feeds. They did increase his feeds to 56ml every 3 hours. His shunt surgery is still scheduled for Monday. He will be put back on the ventilator and have to stop eating but hopefully only for a short time.
