2 weeks old!

Yesterday was a rough day for everyone in our pod, but today is a new day and we have a new outlook on things. Our boy is doing great today and that's what matters! He is completely off his dopamine, diuretics are only every 6 hours now, and his morphine will be weaned down today. He is having a PICC line placed in his leg (an IV that is more for long term). He will also have his umbilical line, chest tube, and RA line removed today. He was seen by an occupational therapist who checked his tone and reflexes. She said everything looked like he is right where he is supposed to be. He will have a follow up EEG on Friday to make sure he is not having any more seizures.

Since he is getting the PICC line placed his extubation has been moved to tomorrow. He is definitely ready to lose the vent, he is on minimal settings and has been for a few days now! We are definitely enjoying Jensen being more awake :) we have also been on quite a bit of diaper duty since his catheter was removed! He showered mommy for the first time today...I'm sure there's a lot more of that to come :)
