Making Progress

Mason had a good night. His X-ray this morning looked a little better. So it looks like he is starting to progress a little on that end. He continues to breathe well while still on the C-Pap. And his O2 and CO2 levels continue to look good. At this point we seem to have nothing to worry about. If he can just continue to do this, and then when they take him off the C-Pap if he can do all of this by himself without the aid of O2. That will be the real test.

I have to go home today, but I can stay up until 11:59p.m. if I want. So I'll be here most of the day. I am going to try to pump as much as I can to store for him here at the hospital. The nurse told me that sometimes preemies reject breastmilk, because it is so rich. So there is a possibility that he'll be formula fed, but if he does reject it, that is beyond my control. At least I know I did everything to try to make him as healthy as possible.

That is all for now. I am tired, and I am going to go take a nap!

Glad to hear things are progressing well. I know it will be hard for you going home without him but hopefully you can get some good rest and then he can join you in a few short days.

Bless you my sweet friend. I am praying for you.

Love and Hugs, Lyndy

Ok, so I added you to the loyal commenter list on my post! If you can post just a couple of days after giving birth, that counts as loyal! I'm sure the blogs have helped pass the time while you are waiting on little Mason to get stronger. Still praying for only good news and good for you for taking naps! Sleep now, right?!
