Well the private room is lovely and if I wasn’t sharing it with two babies I would have had an amazing sleep! Hannah is much more settled away from the other babies and considering Ellie has a cold she wasn’t too bad. I’m not enjoying the 5:30am wake-up quite as much as the two of them though.
Ellie is coping extremely well. She is on regular panadol doses (the maximum you can be on in 24hrs), however that is the only additional medication. All her breathing support has remained the same and although she is working a little harder at times she is maintaining her oxygen saturation higher than it needs to be (just slightly less than usual).
It wasn’t a very exciting day today. The girls finally had one synchronised sleep that lasted just over an hour (thank you isolation!). Most of my day was spend looking after the girls general needs and helping/encouraging/cuddling Ellie to help her hold out for the full six hours between panadol doses, she gets grizzly after 4 hours and then won’t sleep til her next dose 😞, poor bubba. She can only get better from here, I hope!
