We spent 23 total days in the NICU.  Grant had all the conditions and complications typical of a 33 week newborn.  He received excellent care and soon was just a "feeder/grower" which meaned he needed to learn to eat so that he could be discharged.  Shayne and I set up a schedule and switched up which feedings we would attend so that one of us could be there with him as often as possible.  We typically were present for six of his eight daily feedings.
