So here is the new schedule likely not to change. August 14th - Sleep Study August 15th - Follow up echo of heart August 16th - Infant CPR and Parent Test* August 19th - Eye Exam and Going home!!!!
* The Parent Test is an overnighter in the hospital with just us and Brinson in a hospital room, to make sure we can handle it. All the other tests are for Brinson, the Parent test is to make sure we are ready.
Last night Brinson gained 2oz to a max weight of nearly 7lbs. After bath time we had to work on some skills...like giving meds and such. Well the NG tube would not pull back so it was clogged and had to come out. I think that was hard for Mommy to watch me put in the tube. Brinson cried..Mommy was sad...but I did it, which means I can do it at home.
Ellie (Awesome Jimmy and Nancy, we are so happy for you guys) goes home tomorrow and it is funny to watch both families. It looks like an assembly line of parents changing this and that for the Baby.
Wide awake watching Mommy
Ahhh....the moments just after a bath...just zoning...
What a beautiful moment!
Here is Mommy consoling Brinson after the NG tube replacement. Look at Brin hold the pacifier
Lots of smiles out of Brinson. We only captured a few but I can tell you I have seen more smiles in the last 2 days than the whole time Brinson has been in NICU. She is a different baby; much much happier.
Here is the first look at Brinson on cannulas. And she is sating 100% on 1/8 of liter. To give you an idea on how good that it is. The best we did in the past was working down to 1/2 liter and we started at 1 liter.
She is finally resting peaceful....ie not fighting the CPAP.
BTW the tube going off to right of the picture is her new NG tube or nasal gastro tube. She is being feed through the new tub. So nothing is in her mouth....yeah!!!!
