Mommy finally got some skin to skin time with Nolan today💙💙 “though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand.”
Psalm 37:24 NIV So, great updates.
Ellis - he had to have one blood transfusion today, which they said would significantly help with his oxygen to get him even lower and he's now at 21% O2 on his belly so that's awesome . He had a 10 g weight loss but when he has a blood transfusion he can't eat for four hours after or before so he will resume feedings at 2 AM. Other than that he has been very comfortable, he had to be swaddled because he's grumpy that he isn't eating lol he's my son for sure . He had been tolerating and digesting his feedings before though. Otherwise he is peaceful.
Nolan- he is at 35% oxygen on his side, the nurse said that he looks even better today than he did yesterday, she said that he doesn't even look sick, he's acting like his normal self. All of his vitals have been good, he has officially made it to 3 pounds! He's actually a little over 3 pounds right now! He had a bell movement and he's tolerating and digesting all of his feedings . They think that they will run the antibiotics for 48 hours. But they will discuss it and rounds tomorrow to see for sure . The nurse also said she isn't getting nearly the secretions in his tube as yesterday so praise God. Other than that . Everything is looking good .
Glory to God for all these amazing blessings . Please continue to thank and pray that Nolan has already overcome this infection and that his lungs are being strengthened , healing and growing as he continues to get bigger and also the same for Ellis and that this blood transfusion helps him to stay requiring very little O2 . Praying and thanking for full growth and development without complications, for a great evening and night filled with improvements . That they both just keep thriving !! #26weekpreemies #twinmommy #momofboys #nicu
