Ethan update

He has been off the ventilator for 5 days now![:D] he is still doing good. He has finally started pooping which they were waiting for. It looks as though his brain bleed is resolving too[:D] He still hasnt really gained above birthweight yet but hopefully he will start. He has had to have a couple of blood transfusions ( just to add blood really since they keep taking it from him). He has been able to kangaroo with his parents alot since coming off the vent which is great. He will be 2 weeks monday and keeps on chuging along!
