Be brave and save 3 lives
Not too much to report on the Ellie front today. She is still having tummy xrays as a precaution, but her tummy still feels soft, which is great. She is off all her milk feeds while her digestive tract has a rest, plus it gives her time to poo (she keeps stealing Hannah’s problems). She was due to get her long line in today, however the doctor we want to put it in also had two others to do so Ellie is at the bottom of the list and will probably have to wait til tomorrow. She is stable and has two working cannulas, so not a high priority. After not seeing her for two days she is looking heaps better, hopefully she keeps resting and improving.
So Hannah is making her little sister look even smaller at the moment. She has done this by weighing in at a whopping 1.46kgs, she is actually looking quite meaty. Hannah has also had her milk feeds increased again. And Hannah’s big news for the day is she got put on to high flow (a different breathing thing, getting her closer to breathing on her own). They are predicting it could tire her out at this stage but will give her a red hot go before putting her back on CPAP. The high flow looks a lot more comfy for her.
