Truman gave us a bit of a scare last night. We had been informed of a major Brady during the prior night while sleeping (the Brady that prompted yesterday's blood transfusion). He had a small one while we were attempting to breastfeed yesterday morning and then last night while breastfeeding, he had a whopper of a Brady / desat spell. Couple that with some congestion he's been having, and he scared Mom and Dad quite a bit. We were very worried that he was on the verge of another illness. So, after the big Brady, they ordered a chest ray (which was clear) and an RSV culture (which came back negative). I think they did it mostly to make us feel better. He did great during the rest of our visit and all through the night. Also, he didn't act like he felt bad.
This morning, he was doing fine and had one of his best breastfeeding sessions ever. He hasn't been needing additional oxygen or more support on the canula. So, we're chalking everything up to exhaustion or perhaps reflux. Between an eye exam, a rough ostomy bag change, OT visits for nippling, two breastfeeding sessions a day, an IV placement (which has already been removed this morning), we think he was just really tired. But, they are keeping a close eye on him nonetheless.
He is up to 33 CCs (8.8 ounces per day or 1.1 ounce at a time) on feeds and has another OT visit scheduled this afternoon to work on bottle feeding.
