Brinson is doing fine this morning. Her vitals looks good. Her CO2 is down which is good and means she is making progress with the settings on the respirator.
The urine output has slowed from 14cc/hr to 8cc/hr. (average per hour should be 2cc) The have done an ultrasound of her kidneys (follow up from the other day) and a chest x-ray.
Her bilirubin is up, which could mean she needs more photo therapy. I know they are planning to test her liver functions. It is possible the TPN (protein via IV) could be giving her Liver trouble.....it is manageable....plus ultimately Brin will be on milk....so it should not be an issue long term.
BTW Mommy slept really good. She goes through cycles where she goes and goes like an energizer bunny and then it finally catches up. I think she slept 10hours last night.
Lisa did her first wash for the baby. That is standard practice in the NICU to send home laundry of bedding they use in Brinson's bed. I think Lisa really enjoyed it.
Otherwise still progressing....more later.
