Little Willow here. I've had an eventful couple of days with Mom and Dad. I'm feeling a lot better and the nurses all say I'm really feisty. Yesterday morning, Dad changed my diaper. I thought he did a really good job, even though he said it was the first diaper he's changed...ever. Later that afternoon, I decided I was getting really sick of that ET (endotrachial) tube that's been sticking out of my mouth. So I waited until my nurse Jen stepped away for dinner, then I got really squiggly and flipped my head around until the tube got dislodged! Nurses came running to my rescue, and I achieved my goal of getting rid of that tube. Instead of re-"intubating" me, they put the CPAP back on me-yay! Now that my mouth is free, it's much easier for me to suck on my little pacifier, which I love.
Today I got to kangaroo with both Dad and Mom! Dad was first, and I really liked laying on him. I calmed right down and fell asleep for a whole hour. When it was Mom's turn, I was a little squigglier, and my eyes were open-I was wide awake. I wasn't too happy though, and my O2 sats were a little on the low side the whole time. Mom didn't take it personally though.
Dr. Grandy says today is my last day of antibiotics, and I might get to start my feedings again soon. I weigh 2 pounds and 5 ounces today. My lungs are feeling a lot better, and I don't have as many loogies these days.
Dr. Frei is coming back tonight, and I'm excited to see her - at least she knows I'm a girl!
Mom and Dad said they'd post some cute pics and video when they get home tomorrow.
Bye bye to Tat
