Witt turned 21 months old Friday and there is talk of Witt going home tomorrow!!! Friday he started feeling much better. Friday night was the first night that he slept all the way through(11 hours!) like he does most nights at home and Melanie didn't have to change diapers and bedding. By Friday night Witt's feeds were to his normal fluid amount and his normal schedule of 4 feeds a day. Through most of the hospital stay he had been on 2 times his normal fluid amount and no diuretics to fight the dehydration! Yesterday the doctors started Witt back on his home regimen of diuretics and his feeds were changed to 3/4 formula and 1/4 water. All of his lab work looked really good. Today he will be fed is normal formula mixture. All the final steps have been taken so that Witt can hopefully go home tomorrow!!

I love seeing Witt interact with Melanie!
