At 11pm tonight they will increase her feedings to 7.6 cc's. After tonight they will not increase her feedings again until she gains some weight or until they come down or off of IV fluids. She has maxed out on her feedings for her weight.
This morning her blood gases (blood work they do each morning) came back borderline. Up until this point her gases had looked great. Around 3ish today they were talking again about the CPAP. They did her blood gases again around 4 and they looked good. Therefore, she is still without the CPAP. Yeah, one more day!
Morgan Kate and I got to kangaroo again today. It is such an indescribable feeling. It's a feeling of contentment and peace. It breaks my heart that I don't get to hold her more or that I can't comfort her when something is wrong. Today she was a little fussy and all I could do was hold her little finger. I couldn't rock her or hold her, or even pat her back. It was such an awful feeling! However, I just keeping looking forward to our "kangaroo sessions" and the time we get to spend together.
