Juliana is having a good day today. They were able to completely turn off her dopamine drip which means she is able to maintain her blood pressure. They retaped her ET tube at about 4 since it looked a little loose, and now everything is snug as it should be. She has been holding steady on her respirator for the most part. They turned her rate slightly up to about 52 breaths per minute to blow off some excess CO2, but her O2 needs have hovered in the 40-50% range which is good. It has been as low as the 30s at times. She just received some medication in her lungs through what looked like an aerosol asthma type container. The name escapes me at the moment. Albuterol? That might be it. If she tolerates that well, Jen may be able to do some kangaroo care this evening. We joked about who gets to wear the button-up shirt today. Of course, it’s her turn today. I’ve been reading The Happiest Baby on the Block while sitting in the NICU. An interesting book so far.
