We both forgot to announce that Benjamin was born on the 4th of July! Latest good news is that his bowels look like they are going to function normally without surgery, so he will start again on food in 12 hours. He has already started to put on weight with IV feeding and is now 880 grams, though a long way to go yet. (He will need to be well over 2kg before he can come home)
Ben's breathing is getting stronger, so he needs less ventilation now.
Still too early for Kangaroo Care (skin-to-skin contact) from his eager dads.
