Well we have had a couple bumps in the road the last 24 hours. Marcus went to do a car seat test. The nurse came back and said that he did not pass. His oxygen levels dropped twice so they wanted to keep him the NICU to observe him. During that observation, he had another spell. That led to him being admitted into the NICU with a nemogram test, which they ran through the night. They hooked him up to watch his oxygen levels and any signs of apnea. We will get the results back later today. One of the reasons he is struggling with his oxygen levels is because he forgets to breath. His coordination is not quite up to par, but I think he is slowly improving.
On top of that his jaundice is on the rise. It went from an 11.2 to a 14 this morning. Right now, he is under the lights to try get those numbers down.
Finally, last night, he was having a hard time keeping his sugar levels up. He was boarding on the low side, which would lead to an IV, which we really did not want to do because that would keep him in for a few more days. In order to get those levels up, we had to supplement him with some formula until my milk comes in. I have been pumping and was able to feed him this morning. He is still eating really well and his blood sugar went way up, so we are thankful for that.
Just a lot of little things that come with a premature baby. We are so lucky to have such a great NICU to send him to. They have been awesome!
We will keep you updated!
