9/27/08 - Back for More
Today was such another awesome day that we decided to go back up there late tonight and spend some more time with Kayleigh. She has been doing great with her bottles and they are going to start increasing her feeds one ml every 9 hours. So right now she is at 7 mls. She weighed in tonight at 1374 which over the 3 pound mark. Woo hoo!! She is still on 3 liters of flow and her oxygen is around 30%. There were no major desats that were recorded and she was just as happy as can be today.
We fed her a bottle this afternoon and she did great. She finished it much quicker than the first time we did it. She is getting a bottle every 3 hours right now. One nurse said she finished it in less than a minute for her. That is awesome! I realized today that I have to leave the nipple of the bottle in longer so it forces her to swallow when she squirms after getting some of the milk out. It took her around 10 minutes to get 3 mls out, but when I tried leaving it in there, she finished the rest really quick.
Aimee and I went up there around 4:30 this afternoon for a couple hours and at 11:45 tonight after our date night (which was awesome!!!). We missed her so much and we wanted to help feed her again. It was the end to a perfect night!
