Day 35 & 36 (April 15 &16)

DAY 35--


I had another funny experience today in the NICU. ANOTHER nurse came up to me, and told me that she thought Martin was the cutest baby on the easter board, with his easter bunny ears.

And as the proud mother, I just nod and say "yes, he sure is cute!"

DAY 36--
They moved his feeding tube from his nose to his mouth today. His O2 needs are very high, and they want him to get the full benefit from it. I can tell it bothers him though, it's a bigger tube, and sometimes he's sucking on it like it's a pacifier in his mouth, or he's grabbing and pulling at it.

They increased his feeding from 28mL to 30mL and he's doing well with that. They also use the feeding tube to help vent air from his stomach.

On a good note, the Cystic Fibrosis test came back negative. They're still running a bunch of other tests though, but we're grateful that one is negative! It's such a relief. They're still doing xrays on his lungs to see if anything they're doing has an effect on them.

His weight is up now too!! He weighs 4lbs1oz. Auntie Amber calls him "Little Chubber".

So glad to hear the CF test came back negative. Before you know it he will be up to 5 lbs!
