Today was my day in the NICU! It was amazing! Its definitely an amazing unit. Those little babies are just so cute but it can be so sad at the same time. I think I’m adding NICU to my list of units I wanna consider after graduation. 💕
Hayden is off the bili blanket, they said she will probably be off the IV tomorrow night and they have lowered her fluids and upped her feeds to 23 ml. They said she has had a bit of reflux but nothing to abnormal or worrisome. I held her today and she was a lot more awake, I didn’t get a picture of her eyes being open though. :/
Peyton’s feeds have been upped to 30 ml and she’s lost a bit of weight but aside from that nothing has changed!
Both girls are doing well taking pacifiers while being fed which is really cool. Hayden has more interest in the pacifier but Peyton is starting to like it more too. I’m really proud of my girls.
Remember when I was a purple haired muffin? Well, GUESS WHAT? If you donate at least $30 to my donor drive for MizzouThon, you can decide my next hair color! @mizzouthon is trying to raise $10,000 for the NICU in ONE day!
The NICU helps premature babies (just like I was) become healthy enough to go home to their families and the hospital does other amazing work. There’s a little under 7 hours left to donate and get all kinds of amazing incentives from me! Check out my Facebook for more and my donor drive link is in the bio!
