We called this am about Brin .... she is now on dopamine for a her blood pressure and has received a blood transfusion. Very normal....remember she only has 45cc of blood and they are taking blood from her pretty regularly to ensure everything is ok.
She is done with photo therapy for now and the hood will probably come off. Her temperature is within the range but still low at 97.6.
The good news is she is still on room air with the respirator. So she is holding her own.
Today is another big day, she gets an echo to find out if she has PDA (patent ductus arteriosus). This is very normal to have and the surgery though scary is really quick. It is done right there in NICU and has been done as fast as 7 minutes.
