He is off his Fentanyl (pain meds) and is up to 3cc of milk every 3 hours. They want to try and keep upping it every day/ every other day. So far he is tolerating the milk expect the one time he threw up when I was sitting with him. I'm glad I got to see his first time but I was sad, I was able to clean him up and he was content again!
We have been doing Kangaroo Care every night the past few days for least 2 hours. He really seems to enjoy it and is able to get some good sleep! I finished my book on K Care and I am so impressed with the benefits of it, even doing it after we have him home. We will definitely be continuing it for a while.
B has a CT scan scheduled for Wednesday. They want to check his brain for puss pockets (infection pockets) from the meningitis and the bleed. They can't see any on an ultra sound so they are either really small or there are none. Treatment would be extra time on the antibiotic.
His weight is 3lb 6.5 oz, some is fluid still but he is slowly gaining :-)
Yesterday D and I were able to get home for the day. We bought a deep freezer, a small one, 5 cubic feet. I need the extra storage for milk and it will last 6 months in a deep freezer! I got to spend time with (my oldest friend) Amy and her son Caleb for a few hours. Her and her mom made me a beautiful bracelet with B's name and his birth stone in crystals. Thank you again!
Today we have brunch planned with D's family and then my parents are heading down tonight. My mom is very excited to sit with me tonight during our K Care!
Enjoy your Sunday! I am loving the Fall weather, even though my Yankee (Fall) candles are still waiting for me at home to be lit I am still finding ways to enjoy Fall. PS I think if I eat another Starbcks pumpkin muffin I will start looking like a muffin....LOL. Good thing I'm burning the extra 500 calories from pumping, my stomach went down so fast, I'll post a postpartum pic soon.
K Care with mom. Our cute little hat we bought off a preemie sight. He really is our little miracle!
