Wanted to update where we are at:
Brooke is in the NICU right now because of some fluid on the lungs which caused her breathing to be a bit labored. We have now found out that she has pneumonia which is not entirely uncommon with a c-section. They have her on antibiotics and will stay in the NICU for a couple days. Weren't expecting this, but it's not anything to get excited about.
Kamryn weighed 6 pounds 6.8 ounces. She is in the NICU and on ventilation right now. We are on the gentle ventilators right now which is what we want and we have some room to play if she needs more oxygen. For CDH families: Pre-ductal sat in the 80's and going into the 90's from time to time. PH at 7.09. Will get ventilator setting a little later.
They are having trouble with getting one of the lines in right now and are doing x-rays to see if there is a pnuemothorax (hole in the lung). Bottom line on Kamryn is that things could be a lot worse, but they could be better. We will have to see how she trends over the next few hours. More updates to come a bit later and I will try to send pictures soon.
Stef is doing good right now and is in recovery. She asleep and will be in there for a couple more hours before going to her room. It's kind of crazy up here so hopefully tonight I can paint a more clear picture of where we are at.
