Emma does not like to keep her feet tucked in her little nest. Everything the nurses put her feet in there, she kicks them back out. She was very active yesterday and she tries to wiggle until she can get onto her side.
Yesterday was my first day to be by myself with our sweet girl. It was nice to just sit in peace and quiet with her. They are continuing to increase her feedings and she is now getting 10 cc every three hours. They were able to identify her bacteria which is causing the chest infection and they tailored the antibiotics to knock it out. The doctors think her chest X-Ray was looking a little more clear, but the infection is not completely gone.
They started her on a mist to help with the mucous secretions in her lungs and were able to loosen up the mucous and suction is out. She seemed to really like it to help with her breathing. Emma is still on the ventilator, but they are continue to lower the rate to prepare her to come off if this week.
All of her vitals are still good as far as blood pressure, temperature and she is continuing to have poopy and wet diapers. She weighs 1 lb 6 oz, so she is almost back to her birth weight! PRAISE the LORD!!
God is continues to answer our prayers with our sweet girl. When I feel like I am overwhelmed, I continue to feel his peace shroud me and keep me calm and let me know everything is going to be okay. We are so blessed and continued to be amazed by our sweet Emma Claire.
They are also going to repeat her head ultrasound as a follow up today, and we continue to believe it will be clear.Continue to pray for her weight gain, infection to be cleared up as well as her ability to be off the ventilator this week.
