"Fabulous...your girls are doing fabulous!" Those words were music to my ears today. How wonderful to hear that. Both girls are working so hard and making progress. Here is the latest:
Cameron had to return back to cpap. They hope that maybe after giving her a little more time to recover from the lung issues this weekend that she will be able to return to the cannula soon. She continued to have some desats today and they are thinking that it is her body's way of slowly returning back to normal but she has not required any oxygen since returning to the cpap.
Reagan had some routine bloodwork done and they found that her hematocrit was low...they were so amazed because she was so asymptomatic yesterday when they transitioned her. Today she began to become more so...she was pale and having desats. So, they gave her a blood transfusion today and since then she has not had any desats.
The speech, physical and occupational therapists came to visit the girls today. They could not assess Cameron very well due to the cpap but they did work with Reagan. She is doing what is expected for a baby at her age and in a few weeks she after she has gotten just a little bit bigger will begin to work on baby steps towards trying to feed orally. The other therapists will work with both girls when they are kangarooing.
At last check Reagan had gained 20 grams which put her at 2lbs. and 2.5 ounces. The nurse had not weighed Cameron yet. All in all the girls are doing and we are so pleased with their progress. Reagan got to kangaroo with Daddy today. She snuggled in close and took a nice nap with him today. Cameron's turn tomorrow!
