Daily Dose: Tuesday, February 24
Hope had another great day today. She had no episodes, so this is at least 5 days without any episodes!! The doctors are thinking about weaning down Hope's CPAP pressure. Currently she is on 7 but they are thinking they will wean her down to 6 within the next few days. If Hope handles that well then they will continue to wean to 5. If THAT is handled well for a few days then the doctors will switch her over to vapotherm, a nasal cannula supplying oxygen that is humidified and heated.
Hope gained weight today!!! She is now up to 1540 grams, 3 pounds 6 ounces. She is really striving to be the biggest Fatty!!
Other than that, Hope got to snuggle with Daddy for 2.5 hours today and Mommy was able to take some great pictures of Hope's face without any tubes or her "trunk" or CPAP hat on! ISN'T SHE AMAZING!?!?!
