Still Moving Along

All bundled up.

Daddy and Nicholas.

Nicholas had another good day today. They turned his IMV down to a rate of 25. They want to try to wean the amount of breaths he gets from the machine to encourage him to breath more on his own. He doesn't breath on his own when they take the IMV off of him to move him so he isn't quite ready for CPAP and still needs the reminder breaths he gets from the IMV.

They increased his milk to 9ml an hour and added a fortifier to it to give him more calories. They discontinued his lipids, fat, and his IV nutrients were replaced with a clear fluid with glucose.

He still has good urine output and stools. Mommy got to change her first poopy diaper today and got a lesson in diapering because he wasn't done going yet!
