Sounds like he's doing great, Meg! I'm so glad for you all!

Just for kicks I looked up Jonathan's bill. It was $252,000. We had to pay $121 for the inpatient co-pay and three prescriptions! That was just the hospital bill, the drs bills came later!! I guess we got our money's worth from those premiums!! [:p]

He weighs 6 lb 7 ounces now [:D] Of course thats still only about 2-3rd percentile on the preemie charts! But the doc thinks its fine.
By the way, check this out. They got thier hospital bill for Ethan's stay today. They had already met thier out of pocket maximin for the year due to my sisters one month stay in the hospital so they owe nothing of Ethan's bill. but it was $187,000.00 !!!!
