Boring Day

Still a little swollen

Tummy time

Nicholas is the same today as he was yesterday. He is still getting 1 cc per hour of breast milk. His urine output for day shift was 5.2 cc per hour per kg. He still has extra fluid around his torso. He looks like he has grown a lot too while he was swollen. It has been almost 4 weeks since he wasn't swollen so we really didn't get to see him grow. They haven't weighed him either because they can't get a correct weight with the excess fluid but they are using 1700 grams which is 3.7 pounds as his estimated weight. He is still on the renal dose of Dopamine and the Lasix every 12 hours. His night nurse flipped him onto his tummy last night and he was snoozing away while I was there.

  1. Boring is good, right? While the sands of time slip by all too quickly for us, the hourglass is a source of frustration for those watching Nicholas' slow, sometimes backsledding progress. If only there was a magic wand......
