Oliver has been doing very well with his tube-feeding. He was on 30 ml per hour for 24 hours straight and didn't have any issues. This morning he had a "bolus" feed which is a fancy way to say he had 6 oz (180 ml) over a few minutes rather than hours. He sat quietly while we gave it to him and he is still comfortable. The nurse just told us that we'll do another bolus around 3 and, if it goes well, we'll be discharged.
Here's Ollie sitting up comfortably and actually giving some smiles this morning for the first time since surgery.
