That is WONDERFUL news--Go Zoey!! I have a question, does Zoey drink your wife's breastmilk then? Is she tube fed or bottle? Just curious how that all works--especially since you said Zoey is filling her diapers so well! ;)

Zoey is fed through a tube into her mouth to her stomach. Until two days ago, the tube bypassed her stomach and went into her duodenum (basically the entrance into her small intestine), but she was taking the feeds well enough to go to the stomach instead. Because they want her to gain weight, it's a mixture of breast milk and formula with extra calories. Hence the excellent weight gain, and the big diapers.

And I complained about my bland steak.

Congrats on the progress. 2 and a half lbs seems so small; perspective is funny stuff.
