Today we were told that Benjamin has a pneumothorax. This is when air leaks into the space between the baby’s lungs and chest wall. They are going to put a chest tube in. The doctor said that it was good that they caught it before Benjamin becomes unstable. Benjamin is now weighing 652 grams. He is a feisty little guy. The brain hemorrhage has gotten a little bigger. It’s not on the other side of the brain but there is swelling which is quite serious.
Kyle weighs 580grams (up 10g). They would like to treat him for the PDA for his kidney function is not good enough yet.
