After Tyler got off of work last night, we headed back up to Stockton for another feeding, and stayed for 2 ;) We actually stayed because they've reduced her IV intake, so that they can try to get her to feed more - about 30 mls. However, during the 1:30, 7:30 and 10:30 feedings (that I was there for), she appeared more tired than hungry. SO the latest update on her is that she's not eating too much on her own and they've added a little feeding tube. We're still trying for her to feed first, but after about 20/30 mins, if she doesn't then, the last resort is to do it through the tube.
POSSIBLE REASONS: the jaundice lights make her a little groggy, and her potassium is a little high, also making her groggy. So in addition to being a little more tired since she was supposed to have 6 more weeks of resting time, those two additional factors may be contributing to not eating much yesterday, since she was doing well the day prior at 15 mls.
prayer for that specifically would be great!
Here are a couple of adorable pics from last night of Daddy and his little girl!
Emma in her incubator with the photo therapy lights on....or as dad says 'already working on her tan'...the lights will help the jaundice go away - her levels are going down quickly!
