Because of Jen’s continued low fever, she sat out from the NICU today. I spent a few hours with Juliana this afternoon, about one and a half in kangaroo care. She relaxed a little too much from the slightly damp spot on my shirt and chest after we were finished. 😛 I didn’t mind. Her rate has stayed steady at 38 though they have turned her pressure up to 15 over 5. Her blood gas has been okay, but not enough to warrant weaning yet today. Her belly is a little big, measuring 22 cm around. They considered giving her some milk today, but her usual waist size is around 20, so they want to make sure they know what is going on there before they add a new variable to the equation. They will be doing a routine x-ray on her abdomen to check out what might be going on. Her color is good and her abdomen is soft so there is no immediate cause for concern. Tomorrow I will probably get to kangaroo with her again. Jen is going to have to sit it out until her fever goes away for 24 hours. No fun for her but it is the safest choice for Juliana.
