Boring Day

Today was pretty much the same as yesterday. Nicholas took his bottle last night but didn't do too well today. It was really loud and busy in the NICU today so I think he had a hard time concentrating on what he needed to do. He only took about 20ml then decided to de-sat (blood oxygen saturation drops) and brady (heart rate drops), so the rest had to go in his feeding tube. Hopefully tonight and tomorrow he will take the whole bottle. Monday is still the big day for his shunt. Then once he recovers he is on the road to coming home. It probably won't be until April, but the shunt is a huge step to go over. They think he will be a totally different baby after the shunt is placed. It will relieve the pressure that is constantly on his brain and he will feel so much better.
