Sam had a good day yesterday and is having another good day today. He managed to gain 50 grams in the last day and is back up to 5lbs 1 3/4 ounces - which for him is a huge gain. His blood work continues to look good and is still getting the simple fat added orally to his diet. His stools are still abnormal and stringy, but they are back to what they were when he was just getting nutrients through his IV. If everything continues to go well they will add a complex fat to his diet and then monitor him for any reaction to that.
Yesterday Grandma, Great Aunt Shirley and Ryan got to spend some time with Sam at a family visit with Deb and I. He was very alert and enjoyed all of the company and being held so much.
Today Grandma is back at the hospital with him for a few hours by herself so that she doesn't have to share him with anyone, which is just the way she likes it.
