It was a twin hug day!
The day started with Ellie pulling her feeding tube out, including her NAVA sensor, this made the NAVA think she wasn’t breathing and breathed for her (this made her cranky) and then the doctors came and turned that part of the machine off so it wasn’t backing up her breathing at all (essentially a CPAP) and that made her cranky. Needless to say twin hugs were cut short again, this time due to Ellie misbehaving – really she just wanted to be left alone in her bed. So two twin hugs and they have taken it in turns mucking up for them, hopefully I get to have them again.
That is actually the only medical news for today as well, other than that all was pretty quiet. Ellie did require her NAVA level to go up, but was breathing beautifully again once she was left alone. Hannah is still doing very well breathing without any support and could possibly be moved out of level 3 (NICU) and on to level 2 in the next few days.
First was hugs with Ellie.
Then it was hugs with both the girls.
Then it was Hannah’s turn.
It was a huggy kind of day.
