Brrrr...It's cold in here

Liana was doing a little better with her oxygen today. She was recovering on her own faster when she was desatting. They added fortifier to the breast milk so that she could get more calories. She was also cold today and we aren't sure why. She had a temperature probe on for the isolette to warm her up but she was still low. We just called and they said she had warmed up, but since she had been cold all day we think she used up more of her calories to try and stay warm. She had lost some weight and was back down to 2 lbs 8 ozs. Our three big prayer requests for Liana are: that she would become more stable with her breathing (not as many desatts), that she would gain weight, and that her brain ultrasound will come back tomorrow showing she is completely healed.

Adleigh was our star pupil today. She is almost 3 lbs 5 ozs and is now up to 8 ml of milk every 3 hours. She has been breathing on 3 liters at room air and her oxygen level stays at 99 to 100 (which is amazing). When we called about her, the nurse said she had heard a rumor that Adleigh may go to 2 liters tomorrow. If she is at 2 liters and full feeds they would send her to the progressive care nursery. She has a little while to get to full feeds, but we are getting closer! Just 9 days ago little Adleigh had her surgery and was not wanting to breathe and now she is doing so well. God has really strengthened her lungs and little body. Our huge prayer request for Adleigh is that she will continue to tolerate her feedings and not have any aspirate.
