She's a real person!!
As for a NICU update, we had a really good visit with Cameron today. I kangarooed with her yesterday and Josh kangarooed with her today, she was on her best behavior through both sessions. She showed no signs of distress at all. We're getting to hold her more often and can probably start holding her every day! Kangaroo time is by far the best part of NICU life.
Her potassium was low today which is common for people taking lasix. They gave her more potassium through her IV feed and didn't give her today's dose of lasix. It has definitely done it's job already, she should be okay without it for a while. They are probably going to start her on a different diuretic sometime over the next couple of days if she needs it.
Her weight tonight was still 2 lbs 5 oz, same as last night. That's okay though, she had gained 3 ounces in two days so I'm fine with her staying the same for a day, I just don't want her to lose. Fingers crossed for another ounce tomorrow night!
