Doing well on IMV

Much more comfortable on IMV

Nicholas had another good day. He is doing good on the IMV. He is at a rate of 30 breaths per minute and was around 28% oxygen today. He looked more comfortable with all the tubes and straps that are on his head and face today.

He has had good urine output and stools today. It is also his last day on Lasix. They took a long time to wean him off of it so hopefully he will continue to have good urine output without it.

His feeds were increased to 5ml an hour and he has been tolerating them well. They reduced his dose of hydrocortizone a little to.
He was doing so good that Mommy got to hold him for almost an hour today. He slept most of the time and didn't have any de-sats.


  1. What a great day! I'm so happy to hear that Nicholas is continuing to do well and that you got to hold him again.

  2. Lookin' good. As we approach a new Chinese Year, let's not forget he, like me and Jacy, were born in the Year of the Rat. Go Nicholas! Watch those dragon parades!!!!!!!

  3. You can probably figure out it was Stan who posted the above comment but my computer thought it was me.

  4. Oh,Corinne, he looks so good! I'm so glad you got to hold him so long today. Kisses for Nick! Anita
