Ellie is still on bed rest and is nil by mouth (she still receives food intravenously, but no milk). The amount of morphine she has been on was halved this morning, as she is looking a little bit more comfortable. She still got cranky during her cares, but looks better than she has. Unfortunately her cannula will have to be replaced, the antibiotics makes them not last as long. Ellie seems to be fighting the infection well, her blood tests have been coming back better.
Hannah is looking good and big (compared to Ellie, especially).The doctors have changed her NAVA settings slightly making her a little less reliant on it. They have also increased her feeds to 1ml every 2 hours. Unfortunately she is not pooing as regularly as she should be again. The most exciting thing is…… she will be off humidity tomorrow and we get to have hugs for the first time (for about 2hrs)! Can’t think of a better way to celebrate her 2 week birthday.
They look alike to me, can you guess who is who???
