September 8, 2009

Charlotte was doing so well on the ventilator this morning they were able to transition her to the CPAP. The CPAP in Milwaukee has two styles which they try to alternate between - the first is two prongs that stick in her nose and the other is a piece of plastic that covers her nose. Both do the same thing - supply pressure and Oxygen to the lungs as needed - but she is not a fan of the prongs. Charlotte may have been born with a temper.

She appears to be struggling on the CPAP, but this could mean she needs some time to adjust or that she's not quite ready. Only time will tell - Vitamin T according to Dr. Wu.

Charlotte's feedings went up to 10 mls every 3 hours today. She isn't yet able to digest all of it in 3 hours, so she more or less received 10 mls every 6 hours. Again, she's in need of some Vitamin T.
