These past couple days have been really hard for me as I have a cold and am not allowed to see the boys. But I phoned this morning and both boys are stable.
Kyle was good for the whole night and didn’t have to be bagged again. They are hoping to start feedings again as he is off the Indocid for his PDA.
Benjamin’s oxygen had to be put up to 45% as he kept desatting. He is getting fed 5ml every 3 hours.
Desatting is when the oxygen saturation in their blood falls below a certain point (usually 76) for 10-20 seconds. They usually let them come up on their own or turn the oxygen up but sometimes they have to bag them. Bagging is when they take a little black bag and attach to their ventilator and pump the bag. It’s kind of like CPR but with a bag.
