Annabelle is sleeping. Played good this morning.
Dropped her sats more than normal when she fell asleep for her nap though, so we had to go up quite a bit on her oxygen, the highest since our arrival. We’ll be able to go right back down once she wakes up, but we think the junk in her lungs is just settling in there and she isn’t coughing it as good as she needs to.
They’ve ordered another respiratory treatment, CPPD (basically where they come and beat on her back periodically to try and loosen the gunk up in there.) We could deep suction her to get some of the gunk out of there… but that is NO FUN for Annabelle so we’d much rather her cough it up on her own!
Tentative plan is still to change feeds tomorrow so they can monitor how she does and how her weight reacts.
We’ve also had an issue that she hasn’t been peeing as much as any of us would like. Because she looks LESS dehydrated than when she came in, and she’s been tolerating feeds decently, they gave her a spot dose of extra diuretic this morning to see if that would help.
She finally peed about an hour and a half later, so YEAH!
Although, Mommy isn’t loving that it took extra medicine to make her pee… as I’m not sure I understand why she isn’t doing it herself. Something they are keeping an eye on closely.
BIG thanks to my sweet husband for holding down the fort at home… my sweet biggest sister for bringing me socks and a hair brush that I forgot to bring along with other goodies (among them, coke and chocolate… she knows me so well!) and for my other wonderful big sister for watching my kids most of the weekend so my hubby didn’t have to miss work, and for my Momma for watching them on Thursday! I have an AMAZING family! Thank you guys!
