UPDATE: Brinson is doing well on her feeds. As of last night she was on 11.4cc per hour. She is about 2/3 of full feeds...which is great. And she finally gained some weight....6lbs 4oz. The pulmonalologist is coming on Monday...until then nothing happens with her CPAP.....no weening in other words.
Brinson is doing very well and is tolerating her increased feeds of 6.8cc per hour. She is on 22 percent oxygen this morning...yah! She had an ultrasound at 2am to check for stones and such. We don't have the results as of yet.
I love watching Mother and daughter connect with each other. It is so neat.
When she is out, she is out. It does not matter if the pacifier is half way out.
Stop, I am sleeping. It is funny because the hands are always out there
Hiccups from 2 nights ago....videos would not upload yesterday for some reason.
We are now at 6.8cc per hour on the feeds. They are cutting back on the IV stuff. She gets about 3/5 from IV and 2/5 from neocate. So that is about 160cc a from neocate, when is she about 405cc or 16.9 cc per hour if my math is accurate. Now that all changes when she goes to up in weight.
Here are some videos and pictures from yesterday.
Mommy, hold it right here. Yeah right, I can suck the rubber off now. Tanks!
Mommy put up a feather boa, but we had to take it down. Too many particles and all the babies are on respirators. Not good. But a neat idea.
Brinson slept most of time while I held her yesterday. Part of time, I was playing what I like to call "nasal cowboy." That is where I try to keep the CPAP in her nose while Brin wrestles around.
Mommy, I am sleepy.
What a smile Daddy has, even Brin is wide-eyed about it.
Last night we all had to wait till about 930pm as several babies were having emergency surgery. Hopefully everything went ok. As we were waiting (outside the door of NICU) we got an opportunity to meet new people and share stories about our baby.
After getting in 3 grandparents (Grampa, Nana and Abuelo) got to see Brinson before and after bath time, which is a real treat these days. Bathtime is only every 2 or 3 days.
Last night Brinson was practicing a new trick....trying to roll over which Nana and Mommy got to see first.
Here is my central line scar...ouchy!
I am wide awake, but really I am very sleepy.....hard to tell with my eyes so wide open.
All dressed and ready for bed, Daddy is tucking me in for the night.
Brinson is doing quiet well. We are ramping up on feeds slowly and lowering nitric until Tuesday. Then they will check and make sure everything is ok before we attempt the cannulas.
