Good morning everyone! We had a milestone today that I couldn't wait to share with everyone. Brooke is officially in the CCN which is the lowest level of care in the NICU. She is off all lines and even monitors at this point. She is jaundice at this point so they are keeping her today, but she will be going home tomorrow. We are so excited to bring her home with us. Looks like Stef will be going home tomorrow also. Stef's pain is still a little high when she walks, but it is getting better.
Kamryn continues to do great and she had a very uneventful night. They went up from 24 to 25 on her positive pressure ventilation overnight, but that isn't a big jump. Her carbon dioxide level has moved back up into the high 60's so they need to work a little today to get that down. It appears her vent tube was a little low after they took x-rays so they moved it back up a little bit and that should correct the problem. The rest of her numbers all look great. She has one more day of rest and then they might start pushing her a little to see how she reacts. She continues to just work through everything and remains in the best state we could have ever hoped for. She has really blown us away with her progress.
We are going down soon to spend the morning with them and will update everyone tonight. I may go home tonight and stay there and if I do I will post a lot of pictures.
Take care and happy father's day to all the dads out there,
