New Month, New Mason - April 1st, 2016

Let's hope it stays this way. This will be short and sweet!
This morning when I came to see you, the nurse didn't have any news for me. The resident from neuro came and felt your little head and said that he would leave it up to the NICU team to determine if they wanted to tap your reservoir today. I waited until the doctors rounded and they also felt your head and said that they didn't think you needed it today, but I am assuming it will be this weekend. The doctors wanted to try again to wean your respiratory rate down from 20 to 15. So far, you have been doing well on it! The only other change they made was increasing your feeds from 25 ml to 28 ml.
When I called tonight to see how you were doing, she said that you were still at a respiratory rate of 15. She said that you had a few brady/desats and she wasn't sure if it was because your feed just stopped. Hopefully that stops and you will have a great night!
We love you and are so happy you are doing well today! See you in the morning!
