A great week

Isaac is doing great he has been dubbed the desat king referring to the sensor that monitors the oxygen levels in his blood (not very accurate but keeps them from having to draw blood too much) He sets this alarm off constantly. The Dr. explained that this is more than likely caused by the breathing tube being irritating and him clenching his throat. So until he can come off the respirator the only other option is to put the tube down his nose and the Dr. said most baby tolerate that even less than down the throat. He is gaining weight and is at 2 Lb 1 Oz and right on track so now we are just waiting for him to grow. He is looking chunky and we will have new pictures up soon.
