    Yes, we never got above 3ml/hr until the surgeon closed the stoma my son created and placed a stoma further down his intestinal tract. The stoma he created was super high, so he wasn’t able to digest and absorb much of anything.

    Now we are working out way up, he is at 7ml/hr and increasing every day or two. Because he was in such little feeds, his direct bilirubins got really high and he had a yellow/green hue. They are coming down now and he is looking like a normal hued baby.
