I'm sorry I'm not actually blogging. I will get this routine down here some day and I'm sure just as I do, Wyatt will gladly come home and it'll take me a while to get it down again. :-)
"I'm doing do awesome they took the tube out of my belly button!" -Wyatt
Notice anything different?!? Wyatt was taken off his ventilator and put on a cpap (way better!) and his stomach suction tube is smaller and set to gravity!! His central line in his chest is supposed to come out tomorrow as well!! God has given this little boy some big time fight and strength!!
Daddy is suctioning all my spit bubbles away!!
Wyatt got his chest tube out so I got to hold him tonight. He's 11 days old and holding him brought out more emotions in me then I thought possible. I know this is the beginning of our NICU journey but I want him healthy and home with me and in my arms ALL the time. James will get to hold him tomorrow. I'm not sure we'll ever leave the hospital again! — with James Davis.
1 + 1 = 3
Oh NICU life- 2 steps forward and 1 step back. We got a call a little after 1 am from Wyatt's nurse practitioner. He was struggling some with his breathing and after a blood gas and X-ray they saw that he wasn't blowing off CO2 like he needed to so they re-tubed him and put him back on the ventilator. He also started having green vomit and so they stopped feeding him my breast milk for the night and will try again later. It was hard to hear but I'm reminded that God's in control and Wyatt is still doing good. His chest tube is still out. — with James Davis.
Attempting the rail to see Wyatt! So far so good, other then JD being nervous that I'm doing it by myself.
