    Brandi: Update: Porter was downgraded from Cpap to high flow. It's still room air which is great. We are waiting on more chest X-rays. The nurse said his lungs sound great so hopefully there is some improvement in the X-rays. Mommy and daddy finally got to hold him. The plan is to try and wean him off the high flow.

    Brandi: Just spoke with the pedi. He has a partial collapsed lung. They are keeping him in the nicu today and the pedi ordered feedings today so he can be weaned off the iv. He said babies have to be weaned off iv fluids or their blood sugar collapses. He said Porter is doing well so they are treating him and not the X-ray.

    Praying he get strong and all healed up really fast.

    Brandi from 8 hours ago: I made it down to nicu. He's got an iv in, Cpap with room air not extra o2, and a tube down his throat to help relieve gas. He had X-rays done that showed fluid on his lungs that could lead to pneumonia it's basically a waiting game. Hoping he can come out tomorrow. Here is a picture

    Brandi: They also have no explanation for why any of this happened. I had no complications and delivery was fine. I'll post a birth story later. I can't spend all day in nicu because my body hurts and it feels better to lay down.

    Brandi: Just thought I would give a quick update on us. Right now we are trying to wean Porter off iv fluids. They are checking his glucose levels every 3 hours and then I get to nurse him. His glucose has to be above 60 in order to come down by 2 points. He started out at 12.4 and he's down to 6 right now. His next feeding and check is in 2 hours. Once we get to 2 which we are hoping will be at midnight then we shut off the iv fluids. He then will need 2 more checks at 3 and 6am. They have to be above 50. As long as they are above 50 the nurses don't see a reason why he wouldn't be able to then be released from nicu. They plan on checking his bilirubin in the morning and possibly a few other tests to make sure he's still clear of infection. His o2 levels are great and he's been off any breathing machines since 9am. His latch is awesome and we have no problems nursing at all. He was just weighed and he's dropped to 7.13 lbs which is normal. If we get released tomorrow I'll get a birth story wrote up. While here I'm busy soaking up cuddling him. I've been to my room once all day. seeing his X-rays are depressing to me. They showed little improvement and knowing he had a collapsed lung or bilateral pneumo thorax (air outside the lungs) it seriously could have been much worse. The pedi said if it was much worse they would have had to put suctions in his chest wall basically to relieve the pressure. We did find out that this happens in only 1% of babies born, it also could have been when they were putting him on the Cpap because his o2 levels were so low the extra pressure from the Cpap could have caused it. Our pedi couldn't give us an exact reason other than those 2 things. He seems to think it was the later though.



    Wishing may prayers and love to your wonderful baby boy!

    CONGRATULATIONS, BRANDI! I hope that the little guy bounces back quickly. It sounds not too different from my niece's experience when she was born -- we just celebrated her 6th birthday on 4/17!!

    Great job, mama, and hang in there. I hope this piece passes quickly.

    Brandi: The pedi just said as long as his glucose is good at his midnight, 3am and 6am checks he will be good to go to my room and out of nicu.

    Brandi: Porter was able to come to my room after his 3am check. They are checking his glucose again now. I didn't know it needed to be before his feeding and I fed him just before. Hopefully it's not a big deal. I'm soo exhausted! I have literally slept less than 8 hours since wed night. I'm so ready to go home and get some good rest. I'm way to light of a sleeper to sleep in a hospital. All I hear are doors opening and shutting lol.
