Well, Cameron was able to be fed one more time and then she quit going to the bathroom. So, they had to take her off of food and back on dopamine for renal function. They did a full blood workup and ran blood cultures again just to be on the safe side. As of early this morning she was using the bathroom normally and her nurse was hopeful they would take her off the dopamine and then she would be able to resume eating today. I will be calling today after 11 or so but we are taking Aubrey to the doctor today because she is still having tummy troubles.
Reagan's brain scan turned out fine and she is still doing well. I asked her nurse about her nasal cannula use and she said that Reagan is doing so well they may actually begin trialing her with just room air on her own in the near future. Both girls are on room air - not requiring any oxygen. They will both also be screened by the opthamologist next week again for their eyes.
Cameron is being fed throughout the weekend. They have taken her off of her medicine and she is doing all that she is supposed to. They will leave her on the cpap for the weekend so she can focus on eating more. Reagan was taken off of the nasal cannula this afternoon. She stayed off and did well regulating her own breathing for 30 minutes and then started to desat so they placed her back on the cannula. They probably won't try to take her off again for a while since she couldn't maintain her own saturation for a long extended period of time. That's fine with me, I don't want her to work any harder than she has to because she needs to save those calories to gain weight!
