Benjamin is still on CPAP! They put him on it yesterday. He had to switch to trigger assist CPAP last night because his gases were high but it is still a step in the right direction. He was very calm today, sleeping most of the time. At the end, he was wide-awake just looking around. I heard him cry for the first time today- so cute. I could hardly hear him it was so soft. They are taking his gases daily and his PCO2 has to be good for him to stay on CPAP. PCO2 is the carbon dioxide in his blood. He seems much calmer than when he tried it the last time so I think he’ll be able to stay on it now.
Kyle was a little monkey today. He has been trying to crawl out of his isolette lately. The other day he wiggled his way to the front of the isolette and then started going sideways by the portholes. I think he’s trying to find Benjamin. Only 200-300 more grams and then they can go together in a crib:) Today he took 5 ml while nursing. This is the first time he’s actually showed something while being test weighed. I was excited. He is now feeding every 3 hours (q3) so he can have a bottle or nurse every other feeding. I told them not to rush it if he is tired as this can make him regress.
