Good X-ray

Well Brinson even surprised the doctor with the best x-ray Brinson has even had. They were a bit suspicious that the x-ray was from her. But it was.....yeah!!!!

So far no infections (blood, urine, LP...etc). There is still a possibility of a urinary or blood infection. But for right now, she is doing pretty well.

The lungs are better than yesterday but over all she is still on the vent and probably will be for awhile. The surgery really set her back.....

They are proceeding with the pedialyte and if all continues to go well they will start with breast milk in 1 or 2 days. Milk does the body GOOOOOOOD!!!!

Also she they have reduced the paralytic from 2-4 to 4-6 hours. She is more wiggly, but pretty calm overall.

Her kidneys are working, but not good enough to have diarrhetics for long periods of time. So they will try and giver her lasix (diarrhetic) every other day. The diarrhetics are to help get the water off her lungs.

Hey there- I'm so sorry I never made it by today to see Brinson and Zachary. Things were nutty in labor and delivery! It was great to chat with you guys in the cafeteria- I'll keep checking your sites (its part of my daily routine!) to check on my 2 favorite preemies, and I promise to make it by NICU next week when I'm there!
