Ashlyns Morning Plans

This morning Miss Ashlyn still looks yellow so they will do the blood test for jaundice and take advantage of the chance to treat her with lights while she’s already in the NICU if needed. They lowered oxygen to 21% overnight and she tolerated it well so she goes back in the hood today then if she’s doing great we try a real feeding which means we could maybe hold her for the first time today. The chest xray yesterday looked more like immature lungs rather than wet lungs which is not very common for a baby at 38 weeks but obviously it happens because here we are.


Doctor Loh is hoping she can try room air in the morning tomorrow and if she can suckle well possibly discharge on Sunday.  Only one day after I leave so that would relieve lots of stress about coordinating our lives without taxi rides to deliver pumped breast milk and visiting the hospital to nurse her.


Thanks for your prayers.
