Daily Hope: Sunday, February 1
Happy 8 week birthday to HOPE!!!!
Hope had a rather rough morning this morning. Evidently she thought there was a sale on ventilators and, being the conscientious shopper that she is/will be, she didn't want to pass up a good sale. It started off when she had her blood gas drawn. It wasn't great so they increased the pressure on her CPAP. If the gasses didn't improve in an hour they were facing re-intubation. Thankfully they sold out of ventilators and were not offering rainchecks, aka her gasses went back up and she did not have to be re-intubated, staying on the CPAP for now. As long as Hope "behaves herself" she won't have another blood gas until the morning.
Hope is still learning how to multi-task. She gave everyone a few more grey hairs today when she kind of forgot to breathe and her heart rate dropped really really low and her oxygen saturations kind of dropped low as well. Fortunately, she bounced back and no further action was necessary.
Hope has become sick of her stationary surroundings and tried to go on an adventure of her own. She was laying on her belly in her isolette and started kicking. She got to kicking at her bedding and next thing you know she had scooted herself out of the bedding and across the isolette. Apparently she didn't get the memo that she's too young to crawl!!!! Silly Hope!
In other news... today is Superbowl Sunday. Hope doesn't seem to care since the Pats aren't playing, so she, along with her Mommy & Daddy, are uninterested. Grandpa & Grandma Robinson also appear to be uninterested since the Lions aren't playing. G'pa R seems rather disenfranchised, saying something about it is doubtful if the Lions will ever make it to the Superbowl within Hope's lifetime, even if she lives to be 100. Very interesting how pessimistic Lions fans appear to be.... well at least Hope is somewhat optimistic.
