No Drip!

The drip needed to be moved tonight, and the doctor was concerned that Inigo was starting to look like a bit of pin cushion, so she decided to ramp up the breast milk feeds, and trial doing without the drip. He’s now had two feeds with no drip, and we haven’t had any chucking yet, so far so good….

Oxygen is down to 25%. Air is 21% oxygen, so we are very, very close to normal breathing.

Slowly but surely, we’re getting there.

2.20am

At the last hourly feed he had 11mls of breastmilk, and no spewing! We need to get him up to at least 15mls to compensate for the fluid he was getting from the drip, so this is really encouraging!

(and yes I am sleeping, just woke up to pee and thought I’d visit him)

  1. They have yet to write the manual that arrives before a child is born. This is all Inigo knows, his mother is always there, as you always have been, and you will provide for all his needs. Even for adults every day brings something new, unexpected, joyous, demanding. You will always be the constant in his life, nothing else will ever replace that. And no-one else will ever be his mother.
