We are still waiting for this gag reflex. I heard him sneeze for the first time yesterday, and he had a couple more today. The sneezes come in response to the feeding tube tickling the inside of his nose. Since a sneeze is also a protective, brain-stem based reflex, and he wasn't sneezing before, I have decided to interpret this as a good sign that his primal reflexes are on the mend.
Hank is now sporting that quintessential baby garment, the onesie. He is amazingly cute.
