New Year’s Eve

Coraline had an ok day. She needed her forth blood transfusion, and has been really touchy. Her new thing is kinda holding her breath, sometimes when we are fussing with her and sometimes for no reason at all. If she decides to stretch or gets angry she often bears down and you can see her […]

Coraline Gets a New Vent Tube

Hello! Another snowy afternoon at the hospital, and Coraline got a new vent tube. She’s been growing REALLY well this week. When they had to re-intubate her 8 days ago she wasn’t big enough for the next larger airway tube, which was unfortunate because the smaller one was/is too small to maintain a good seal. […]

Back after the blizzard

She is handling larger feedings ( and their :ahem: disposal) quite well. She looks bigger every time we are […]

Erin gets Discharged!

We got home about an hour ago. It’s time to shower and recoup a bit. Coraline had some moments of low bp today, and had high, then low blood sugar yesterday. As with her respiratory rate they are always fine tuning to make sure she is stable and has what she needs. They started slowly […]

Thanksgiving

I usually don’t do the whole “I’m Thankful for blah” posts, but given our current situation and it being Thanksgiving I find that we have much to be thankful for. Everyone at Community North has been great! Have your baby here if you’re around. Most of the NICU folks bounce between here and Riley, so […]
