Thank you ladies. Your words are encouraging! Those first 96 hours were rough!! Things have improved significantly. The air pocket resolved and he is off all interventions besides the feeding tube. My milk came in and pumping is going well.
Really to go home we are only waiting on him learning to eat, which I gather can take a while (he is at 20-50% by mouth right now).
We are feeling very lucky he is doing so well!
