He pooped!!! Just as ancient civilizations danced to bring rain, we've been doing the poop dance around Riley the last 4 days...and it worked. Doctors gave the go ahead for him to eat again and boy was he hungry. He breastfed wonderfully this morning, Mommy was a little worried he would forget. So we're back on track, and for the first time, one of the doctors said he might be home for Christmas. They are going to start teaching Bill and I how to do the dressings. Also, we'll get him fitted for a special device that will go over his omphalocele so he can be in the car seat, and Occupational Therapy will make a special foam mat that has a little scooped out portion for his extended belly for tummy time. They think of everything here!
He also got some new digs. In the picture he is in a CRIB! Good things are happening here, we are so thankful to have such a strong little boy and amazing nurses and doctors.
