It seems Miss Taryn has turned this corner! 🙂
-She has responded to the antibiotics
-Her ventilator settings are getting turned down little by little
-They have increased her feeds and she continues to tolerate them
-Her blood sugar has been stable
-She is tolerating her care better. Any time the nurses needed to touch her or adjust her it would take her an hour or more to settle down and they would have to increase her oxygen to help her get stable. Now, it only takes her a few min if at all for her to recover. I was even able to touch her today! It’s been quite a few days since I’ve been able to touch her because we wanted to disturb her as little as possible.
-She weighs about 1 lb 9 oz, her head is bigger and she is around 13 inch long
It’s very frustrating because we celebrate all these improvements yet, we still are far from her not being considered critical. I am done with that status. I’m ready for her to be off the ventilator, gaining weight, and at a point where I can hold her every day. Being a parent of a micro preemie sucks.
