Benjamin got re-intubated today. He was working too hard on the CPAP and was getting tired. They aren’t sure if he has an infection or if he was just tired from the CPAP. They put him on antibiotics just in case. They did a CBC (blood culture) and should get the results back within 48 hours. He was very active so I don’t think he has an infection. He was trying to pull out the ventilator again. I suspect he’ll have it out by next week. The nurses really have to keep a good eye on him.
Kyle was sleeping most of the time. I gave him a sponge bath inside the isolette and he enjoyed that. He then got to cuddle skin to skin with mom and try breastfeeding. He got tired too fast so got his feed through the NG again. Try again next time, I guess. He is only almost 34 weeks so he’s not going to get it right away.
