NICU Day 68

Baby Girl had a great day today.  I talked with the doctor about my suspicions that the new human milk fortifier was causing her issues in the rear.  The doctor said we could change to a formula called neosure now, rather than waiting until we go home to decide to keep the liquid fortifier or change to the powder.  So we made that change and I'm hoping to see her rear heal very soon.

Baby Girl is at 4 unfortified feeds a day.   Her weight gain was very small today, but only half her feeds were at the new 49 ml volume.  We'll see what the doctors say today regarding her very modest weight gain.

Baby Girl was having a LOT Of alarms overnight and into the morning.  She started alarming a LOT after the first time I fed her.  The nurse and I were very perplexed by the numbers compared to how she looked.  After holding her upright and checking her probe, we finally changed the probe, even though it looked fine.  Her sats immediately improved and looked a lot better, so we believe it may have been defective.  We'll see which of the alarms they hold against her of the 11 that she had that morning.

I left the hospital and came home to enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving meal with The Husband's parents.  We forewent a large gathering to help ensure we stayed healthy this holiday season.  I REALLY missed baby girl this evening.  I hope she comes home soon.  I did some Black Friday online shopping at Carters and found a fantastic clothing collection in Navy and Grey for baby girl.  I bought quite and found an additional 30% of coupon code!
