I was surprised this morning to find that Juliana’s vent settings had changed from 38 to 28 breaths per minute. Her blood-gas was excellent which gave them the confidence to make that big change. She is breathing a lot more on her own and isn’t riding the vent as much. She was given some blood during the day to help with her crit levels. She doesn’t get blood as often as she did, so that is a good change. She had a stool this morning which decreased her belly size some. The x-ray just showed coils of gas, so she just needs to move some more meconium out of her system. My cousin Dina came and visited us this afternoon and we got to watch Juliana in her isolette. She wiggled around quite a bit for us. We’re looking forward to Jen being able to visit the NICU tomorrow.
