Happy Resurrection Day!
He is Risen…He is risen INDEED!! : Having my own church here with the little man.
He did not improve on his feeding overnight, so this morning the IV team was called in…honestly they would have left it go another half a shift, but being mom, I knew he was weaker today. I am glad, since after they put in the order for the IV, he only drank 6cc for his morning feeding followed by 7cc two hours later. That is about 1/3 of an ounce: surely not enough to sustain him. He only drank a total of 4 oz all of yesterday.
He woke up without even the energy to smile. Now a few hours of IV, he is smiling again in his sleep…yep a definite sign 🙂 The new IV is in his scalp…btw they called the line in his neck an I-J for internal jugular. I knew it had a name. The main attending once again moved his oxygen down this morning for a very brief trial, in less than two minutes, his pulse oxygen saturation was trending downwards significantly. He just needs a bit more TLC is all.
The Easter Bunny came to see us today, but he was sleeping. They could not have touched him anyway since he is in an isolation room. But I took a picture! Pray that Eli has the DESIRE to eat. He really isn’t that hungry and just gets too exhausted to suck for very long.
He is RISEN!!
