Today was a better day. Masinja was resting pretty well today. He’s doing well with the vapotherm, and his oxygen sats have been in the 90s. He got a little agitated in the evening, but he was just tired. They’ve started feeding him again, and he seems to be tolerating it well. They gave him 5ml per hour for 5 hours, gave him a 1-hour break, and then started him back at 4ml per hour.
Madelinja is off her sedation, and back to her old self. She’s having her temper tantrums, and keeping the nurses busy. Her stomach looks pretty good. It’s still a little swollen, but not as bruised. She’s doing a little better on her vent settings, so we’re hoping that she’ll take off when they start feeding her, and be able to get rid of the vent. We’re also hoping she’ll do it in a more orderly fashion than her brother.
Well, that’s all for today.
