Time for Milk!


Trish just called with an update so I’m putting up a quick post.  Rudy has been at full feeds (30cc) since 3am and everything continues to go well.  So, in the next hour they are going to switch him over to breast milk.  We know now that his stomache can process at the volume it needs to, now we need to know if it can process fats without there being any chylous fluid coming out of his lymph system.  The JP drain is still in, but probably won’t last much longer, so the plan is to start milk in the next hour and see what comes out of the drain–please pray for NOTHING!
