Happy 1 Month Birthday Aidan!

Can you even freakin' believe it? My son is a month old today!!!

Update from Monday. Aidan had a much better evening than the night before. He did really well on the cannula while on it. He actually spent a good 9 hours on it! That night he weighed 3 lbs. 5.2 oz.

1/13 - Aidan's nose is starting to get worse again. The cpap really irritates it and it's breaking down the skin and denting in his little nose. They want him on the nasal cannula as much as possible. They gave him some lasix, the fluid retention medicine, and a double dose of caffeine. He ended up on the nasal cannula for 9 hours and then put back on it at midnight. The lasix caused a little weight loss, which is fine if the gain was fluid retention anyway, he weighs 3 lbs. 4 oz.

1/14 - A whole month old! Seriously, I can not even believe it! Chris's schedule ended up changing so he has tomorrow off, not today. So we will be heading to see Aidan tomorrow instead. He did go on the nasal cannula at midnight and when I called the NICU at 9:30 he was still on it. He's doing super. They are going to keep him on there as long as possible without him getting too tired out. I'll call later today, after rounds, to see how long he made it for... who knows maybe he'll stay on it!
