Another Mila Update
Hi Everyone. I just checked Sarah's blog again before I headed to bed. Here is the latest update:

Mila remains quiet and sleepy with a minimum of fussing. Her tube looks good, no fever, and she's only needed tylenol once. I napped a bit and now I'm waiting for my dinner to arrive by alex express. Mila's heart rate keeps dipping into the 70s which indicates she is resting easily. Her BP has come waaaay down from the astonishing 135 / 56 that is climbed to!!! They decided that this ( coupled with a high heart rate and faster respitory rate ) was a by product of her pain tolerance and gave her some tylenol... She's been good since! Mila has had lots of visitors from her last stay on 4c and we are grateful to be getting such care. More tonight!

I'm so glad you were able to get some rest Sarah!! Talk to you soon. BIG BIG HUGS to you both!

Another update:

Last night, mila developed a bit of a distended tummy and became very irritable and easily cried. After a few minutes, I called for some more pain meds. Even though it wasn't ordered, the nurse got her an rx of ibuprofen and that helped a bit. We eventually had to lower her feeds to 20ml / hour and leave her iv running. I assume we'll try upping her rate and lowering her IV again today. After lowering her feed , we burped her through the tube.. Very interesting. She was then able to sleep for most of the night!! Even I slept a bit!!

Check with your
doctor first!
