James and I began this blog at the very beginning of our pregnancy with Wyatt to share and update our new adventures as we became pregnant and start the new season of parenthood. Sixteen weeks into pregnancy, I had to go into surgery to ensure our son would not come too early and shortly after, we found out Wyatt has Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). This is our humble attempt at being transparent and hopefully sharing the joys and love of Christ through this roller coaster ride we're on. And now to share even more with the new miracle on the way.

Day 58

Day 58: Big day- our little man lost a big piece of hardware! His central line was removed this morning. He got his first dose of Tylenol for the procedure bc his skin had closed around the line (normal/expected). So, it can be a little painful for babies. Nurse Emily said he was pretty upset and the doctor tried to comfort him and she snuggled with him afterwards. The Tylenol knocks him out hard. He was asleep and remained asleep most the afternoon and evening but was wide awake the last hour and half or so and when we left. We attempted a small bottle feed but he basically just played with the nipple in his mouth- still good but he didn't drink anything really. His continuous feed is still set on 20 cc's an hour with no real big spit ups. They also turned his nasal cannula down to 1.5L of pressure. If he does good on it, he can return to ACN status instead of ICN. We also had another explosive #2 but this mamma got smart and waited for round 2 to move the diaper!! :)
