Please Keep Praying!
Avery is still in the NICU at Intermountain Medical Center and he is back on oxygen. We really don't know why he isn't able to get enough oxygen without assistance. The doctor is saying 7 days on antibiotics at a minimum. The jaundice has resolved and he doesn't need any more phototherapy and he is trying to learn to breastfeed - something he took to right away the first few hours. Now he has forgotten how and he has had some nipple confusion as they have tried to feed him pumped milk from a bottle in the NICU.
