Well, I can no longer use the word “NICU” in the titles. Lila has officially graduated from the NICU to the Infant Care Center (ICC).
She had been working harder to breathe in recent days, so they increased her O2 flow from 1 to 1.5 liters. So far, it’s made a huge difference. She’s breathing easier, her O2 requirements are down and she’s bottling like a champ! She took 30 of her 48 mls at her noon feeding today. The doctor said it’s important to get her working on her feedings. We can wean her O2 when she’s ready.
I downloaded an application to my phone so that I can update the blog without my computer. It’s not much fun typing on a phone, but will come in handy for quick updates.
