7 Weeks: Aug 20, 2012

August 21, 2012

Another lovely no-news day here in Oliver land. The OT tried adding cereal to his bottle but decided that wasn’t the solution. He’s still chugging along, we’re trying to keep him up after eating and then let him nap so he’s well rested and has the energy to eat. It’s a lot of work for his little body and he gets awfully tuckered out when he eats. He had another X-ray and then an ultrasound today. Dr Himidan said his chest looks the same as when he had the tubes in so they’re happy with that. He had no o2 for a bit today and did perfectly, but with his breathing still being erratic, they don’t want to wonder if it’s the o2. So they’re leaving it for now. His amazing nurse Sam changed the dressing on his IV today and found out it wasn’t sewn in anymore! So she taped it like a maniac, hopefully it works and doesn’t pop out. Poor guy doesn’t want any more pokes. His nurses last night, Flora and Katrina, were hilarious, and tonight’s nurse, Diane, used to work with Uncle Dave and is lovely. We’re allowed to eat (bad for my diet), pump at the bedside (good for my milk), and watch tv (hello Bachelor Pad!). I’m starting to get used to life up here. Xo
