Looks as though LBO, extubation, removal of neck dressings and central line will happen 10ish on Tuesday. They’re going to use a local anaesthetic to remove central line. Not sure about LBO. but all going perfectly well, Guy thinks it’s possible she won’t require a tracheostomy. Which will mean we get to do Kangaroo Care!! Not sure about breast feeding but suspect her sucking reflex will need more time to develop. Jen – you might know answer to this one?
Rose will be given caffeine to give her a chance to be as alert as possible so that she can use her lungs. Apparently it’s a small amount and nothing to worry about…
She had a great day today. Slept for most of it. Less vomiting. Looks pretty comfortable.
We brought the boys in to see her which lasts about 5 minutes before they look like they may start to tear the place apart but it’s great to see them interacting with her. They both have passport sized photos to take to class tomorrow. The nurses take a lot of photos. Is it surly of me to hope they’re not using the flash?
It’s 7pm and I’m in the milk room with a couple of other mothers expressing before going home. I’ll be back in tomorrow 7-1, San is visiting us, then my first school pick up tomorrow! Will be nice to return to the boys’ world.
