Morning rounds 10:30am April 21st

Time for morning rounds.  Yesterday he took in exactly 70% of his goal orally.  The doctor said that she wants to see Owen reach maintenance 75% of his goal orally before they will pull his NG tube.  If he reaches that today, they will be taking out his NG tube tomorrow, but with the start that he has had he will have to have some really good feeds later today.  We asked the doctor if it was OK if we took Owen off the floor when we go for a walk and she said that it would be fine as long as he is hooked up and we should take a nurse with us.  One step closer to going home.
