No, I'm not excited or anything :D
I held him while they changed his bedding. Oh, it was the BEST! He did wonderfully out of the hood. His sats only dropped into the 80's and he was fussy too. That is a HUGE improvement. The nurse was thrilled and added a long note to his chart so the doc and NNP would see it. Hopefully, he'll get out of the hood tomorrow and be on a cannula instead. We are FINALLY headed in the right direction.
We got some pictures (with the new super camera). I just noticed that there is a USB connection on this computer. I might, just might be able to upload them straight to here from the camera.
His weight is down to 6-8 but that isn't bad at all considering how little food he has gotten. They just added lipids to his TPN so that will boost him a little. If he continues to do well they will start feeding him my milk via tube again. Pumping is going pretty well and he has quite a few ounces of frozen colustrum/milk waiting for him.
We asked just how many babies are in this NICU right now. THRITY SIX. It turns out that this is *the* NICU for the large health system this hospital is part of. I thought only the two Children's Hospitals had NICU's this large. Learn something new every day. Everyone here is just wonderful. I will eventually get around to writing more about the experience once Tristan is out and home.
