Kamryn had a great day today and hit another milestone - she had 52cc's from a bottle this morning and Stephanie was able to breast feed her this afternoon! She has done so well with her feeds! It doesn't appear that she has any oral aversion and definitely remembers how this whole feeding process works. Another hurdle cleared!
We also haven't had any real issues with spitting up or reflux. I am not convinced that we have really tested it as she has only had up to 2 ounces at a time, but things look promising! Traci, one of her primary nurses, took this picture today and made this card for Hollie from Kamryn:
She is still at 1.6 on the Fentanyl and I think they will go down another .2 tomorrow. She hasn't shown any signs of withdrawal at this point so we are hoping this continues.
Kamryn is also in a regular crib now! Everyday it seems like there is another accomplishment and we are so proud of her. Honestly, if it wasn't for the Fentanyl, I think she would be in the ACN unit right now which is a step down from the ICN she is currently in. She is just doing fantastic and we are counting down the days until we bring her home to be with the family!
Brooke is becoming a little more fussy lately and we are trying to figure her out. My guess is she just wants more attention since her sister Kamryn has received so much this last month. Stef and I just feel so blessed with her progress and how she keeps amazing everyone.
