Back on Track

Nicholas is back on track after his eye surgery. His eyes are swollen but they don't look that bad. He even opened them a little a few times.

They put him back on Vapotherm around 3 this afternoon. His oxygen is at 40% and he was at 5 liters per minute but they want his blood oxygen saturation to be between 98-100% right now. He was still a little groggy from yesterday so those will go down as he becomes more alert.

They started his feeds back up at 25 ml every 3 hours and changed it to 50 ml at his second feeding. He is back up to full feeds and IV free. Today was the day they finally ran out of frozen breast milk:( They will have to start supplementing his milk with formula since he is eating more than I am making.

  2. Let's see. Today is Friday the 13th. Superstitious people don't like this day. They have the same problem next month too. But tomorrow is Valentine's Day, so I want to be the first to wish you a very happy first Valentines Day! It's a day to celebrate love. And no one loves you more than your mom and dad. And lots of others love you too, like me and your grandmother Terri. Later, dude.
