Night Nurse Updates

It's 3:50 am and all seems well on the baby NICU front (other than the fact that they are there and Nora's has an infection that has her in isolation). Both are now up to 30 ml of breast milk every 3 hours. Nora's getting it over 2 hours. Ray is now getting it over an hour (from 90 minutes) and seems to be tolerating the change well. Nora is still having some slow breathing and apnea, but the nurse said she is adjusting to the nasal prongs; she only had one episode where her heart rate slowed as well (brady); and she is a bit more tired because she is having to work harder to breathe since she isn't getting some assistance from the machine, but all in all she is adjusting well and doing well. Ray is having a few episodes of A's and B's, but all self resolved and it is considered normal for his developmental age at this point.

Good news, Deb! So glad to hear it.

Praying that we get more good news this weekend from all the testing.

Wishing you a peaceful Fourth. :):)

Love, Laura

I hope you have smooth sailing in the NICU until Ray and Nora come home.

Did you decide on a middle name for Ray? Is his full name Raymond or just Ray? I love names that aren't used too much anymore.

I love the name Nora Grace, too.
