Baby Emmett, NICU

NICU day 54

Emmett had a good day today. They officially stopped his caffeine and increased his feeds to 39 ML. He put on 12 grams tonight, which still rounds out to 4 lbs 8 oz. His face is starting to look downright chubby, and he’s getting rolls all over. He looks just like a normal chunky baby now, just smaller all over.

D was with him all day since I went into the office, and I just got back to the hospital around 9 p.m. tonight. In the short time I’ve been here he’s only had a few very quick desats and is hanging out in the high 90s most of the time. He’s still pretty grunty and refluxy, but overall it’s pretty boring here, which is fine by me.
