No worries...Kennedy is still in Special Care but she has been placed back on cannula for a little while. She is on room air (21% oxygen) and the cannula provides a constant flow to help her out with her breathing while she focuses on her bottle feeds. She should only be on it for a week and then they will try her off again. This extra support should help out with her bradys (heart rate drops), which the doctors tell us she will grow out of in time. We are really proud of how well she is doing with her bottle feeds, but they do wear her out. She has been able to complete 2 to 3 bottles so far in a 24 hour (8 bottle) period. Gran held her today while I took a much needed nap. They both seemed as happy as could be, and that gave me peace so I could rest.
Drake seems very comfortable with his cannula this time. He spent most of day one trying to get it off of his face. Now that he has settled into it staying, he seems much happier than he was on CPAP. There are so many things that I enjoy with cannula: seeing his little face, picking him up at any time, and being one step closer to Special Care with sister. His blood gas was good today and they will be checking it again in the morning. Hopefully he will continue to do well with his cannula.
