I'm happy to say...

His cultures are NEGATIVE!! They will continue to run his three antibiotics because they're 10 day courses, but she mentioned possibly letting us go home and run them ourselves. We'll be here a few more days I'm sure, just to watch him. But I'm hopeful by the end of the week we'll be home (well, St. Louis home). We've stopped his bolus feeds during the day, so he's just breastfeeding and eating table foods. I truly believe we are on our way to being tube-less!!! He's been steady around 5.8 kg ( 12 1/2 lbs) for the last 3 days.
