I checked in with Amie around 10pm, like I generally do and she shared that Baby Girl gained 20 grams. This officially puts her over the 2lb mark at 920 grams. When she breaks into the kilogram zone, we'll dance another dance of joy. The hospital is really into metric and finds 1000 grams to be a milestone. Amy also said Baby Girl had 2 Brady's in the 8 o'clock hour and 2 more in the 9 o'clock hour. 3 of them self resolved, but on one she had to provide stimulation. Brady's are very scary and I'm very ready for her to outgrow them.
Dr Caldwell called with our update this morning.
- Baby Girl had a day off from labs, so no new information leads to no real treatment changes.
- Baby Girl continues to have clusters of alarms
- Feeds remain the same
- Tomorrow (10/14) they will get a bunch of bloodwork, including a nutrition panel to see if she can start tolerating protein yet. For now, they give her a double dose of Tri-Vi-Sol and some Iron to try and help her weight gain.
Weight: 920 grams (up 20 g) - 2 lb
Milk: 982 ml (32.7 oz)
Feeds: 18 ml pushed over 30 min
NIPPV remains at 25, 26-32% oxygen.
