I want to do a better job…

…of updating as things happen, to capture the emotion, the timing, etc.

Sam hasn’t had any of his steroids today for his bp — he hasn’t needed them. His caffeine started this morning, his o2 level was down to 27; the respiratory rate down to 40. So far he’s tolerating well. Haven’t gotten word yet when his feeds will resume, hopefully in the next day or so. He also got a new breathing tube. A busy day!

Update:
Sam’s feeds started tonight; the last I heard his respiratory rate was at 37– we could really see him breathing on his own.

He had an eye exam today, but we’re uncertain the results (hazy eyes). Hoping that will clear up and just be a sign of prematurity.
