We survived the night, but didn't get much sleep at all. Getting up every three hours to feed Claire wasn't so bad, and she was pretty easy to get back to sleep afterwards. But then the nurses and doctors would come in every few minutes to ask questions or check her vitals or weigh her, so they kept us up all night in between feedings. It is impossible to sleep in a hospital! My mom drove down this morning to give me a break and I was able to go home and nap for a few hours. She is staying at the hospital with me tonight so that James can go home and get some sleep.
Claire is still having trouble drinking 60 mL. They may start supplementing my milk with formula so that she can drink less but still get the calories she needs.
They tried taking her off the oxygen again today but had to put her back on after a few hours because her sats went down. She just needs a little boost to help her lungs. Since she has failed the test twice she will most likely come home on oxygen. We are meeting with a pulmonary specialist tomorrow to find out. If she does require oxygen it will most likely only be for a few months.
They are talking of possibly letting Claire come home on Thursday, but nothing is definite yet. I can't wait to get her home!
