Benjamin was doing good today. He is still in a bit of pain from the surgery and is getting Tylenol every four hours. He seems very gassy right now and was very mad when he had to poop. He doesn’t like dirty diapers at all. He threw a big temper tantrum. Poor little guy! Life is so rough for him right now. He is doing a bit better on his oxygen requirements but still needs a lot of help. He is mostly at 35 – 40 % oxygen set at 60 breaths per minute. He is on a volume guarantee. He was wearing an earmuff most of the day, as it is very noisy in his pod. He is getting fed 13 ml every 2 hours. They have added iron and vitamin D to his feeds. He weighs 1080 grams now.
Kyle is doing really well. He is also in pain still and getting Tylenol every four hours. His oxygen requirements are very good. His is on a pressure support ventilator, which means that it only breathes with him and has a back up of 20 breaths per minute. He is mostly breathing on his own. J They might try extubating him tomorrow. Then he would be on the “high flow” or “c-pap” ventilator. I guess I’ll find out tomorrow which one. He is getting fed 12 ml every 2 hours and is also getting Vitamin D and iron. He weighs 1060 grams.
I'll try to remember my camera tomorrow and take some more pictures as I know a lot of you like pictures.
