Day 50 for Morgan Kate
Today is Morgan Kate's 50th day in the NICU. It's hard to believe it's been that long.
Morgan Kate had a pretty good day today. Her oxygen was around 32% for most of the day. Her lung x-ray showed that she still needed help from the CPAP to inflate her lungs. Therefore, Dr. C increased the flow from +4 to +5 - remember we had decreased the flow over the weekend. He said her lungs didn't look worse, but just needed some extra pressure from the CPAP. They will do another x-ray in three to four days.
I got to hold her tonight for the first time in over a week. It was awesome!!! It was an incredible feeling and while I was holding her she got down to 27% oxygen. Trav and I were both thrilled. I told Dr. C that if needed I could just sit there and hold her until her lungs were mature. Ha, ha!
She is continuing to grow like a weed and weighed in tonight at three pounds and eleven ounces. I am so excited about her growth and pray that she continues to do well.
She has her 2 week follow-up eye exam tomorrow at 9:30. Please say a little prayer for her at that time.
