Here's all the good news: Kieran gained a few grams since yesterday. He started breastmilk feedings today! He will be doing 2 mls/cc's every 2 hours to start. He is still doing well on the CPAP and since the mask was bugging his nose, they found a little nasal prong that he's tolerating well. He had a tiny procedure done while I was there: the nurse practitioner took out the IV line that went through his umbilical cord - he was previously receiving nutrition through there, but now he is getting it through the ET (endotrachial) tube - the green tube that goes through his mouth to his tummy. He does not appear to have an infection like they thought (yay!) His kidney ultrasound showed the right kidney is still enlarged, but he is peeing and that's all that matters now, and we will continue to check on that. Speaking of peeing, I got to change his diaper for the first time today! Oh my goodness, his butt is so tiny!
Changing his diaper
Josh is hanging out with Kieran right now. I'd have loved to go again but I wanted to just rest today, as I was there quite a long time this morning. I need to remember that I'm still postpartum and I need to be resting when I can get the chance!
