Don't worry. It's all perfectly normal...

Jenny and I went to see Noah again today. He seems to be pretty stable. They're feeding him every three hours now and he seems to be doing pretty well with it. He opened his eyes a bit more than he has previously and looked at us for a while trying to focus his eyes. He seemed to be having trouble breathing good, but I think that was partly due to a build up of mucus and gunk in his mouth which they removed. They had his oxygen level quite a bit higher than they have had in the past and that is kind of worrying us a bit. I've read a lot about exposure to oxygen in preemies and lead to eye damage, but no where have I been able to find out what is considered moderate/high levels of oxygen. Of course no matter what's going on with our baby the doctors and nurses all assure us that it's all perfectly normal for preemies Noah's age, but I'm beginning to think if he grew a second head the nurses would tell us that it was normal.
