I shouldn't be surprised about this "attitude" of his. His Daddy is certainly not a planner. Routine and structure make him a little crazy. Like Brinkley, he is quite serious about eating routinely, but that is where the routine ends.
Mr Brinkley has earned many "badges" in his short three months of life. He is a strong little fella. Today he added a new badge to his collection. The Procrastination Badge.
When I left the hospital last night the staff was satisfied with his pacing at 98. Ideally, they wanted him to be in the 130-140 range. However, he was able to maintain is blood pressure with that pace so we were going to go with it. This morning I arrived at the hospital around 8 am and his pace was 125 with great blood pressure and oxygen numbers. I told someone today that he hit a grand slam in the bottom on the 9th.
This was further confirmation that no pace maker was needed. The lungs are continuing to clear up and we were able to have the breathing tube removed today!

Though I get terribly frustrated with procrastinators, I'll take it! Improvement is better late than never.
*As if Brinkley's surprise wasn't enough to warm this Mommy's heart today, look what greeted me at lunch time:
