We called into the NICU this morning and got an update. Zoe’s oscillator settings are slowly being weaned. Her blood gas is good. She is getting another blood transfusion and more platelets. I asked the nurse last night for a count, and she figures Zoe has received 18 transfusions so far of blood and platelets. I’m sure it is a higher count now. Juliana continues to be stable. They think her ductus is almost closed which is good news. They upped her oxygen to between 24-27% but she is doing well. I feel when I look at her that she is incrementally bigger. Maybe just my imagination.
Last night, Jen didn’t feel too well and it turns out she had a fever. They took her upstairs and drew some blood, examined her, and then told us to watch over her. She won’t be able to go back into the NICU until she has 24 hours of normal temperature. They don’t think it is H1N1 or anything like that. We have a dear friend who is letting us stay in his condo by the harbor, so we are trying to rest while we can. Thank you for the continued comments and encouragement.
