I honestly can’t tell you the last time I held little Bella. Look!
Since Dr. Jones changed her trach and removed the stitches, she is off fresh trach precautions. Her other surgeon (I can’t spell his name :( ) came by and OK’d her to start eating again. So her NeoSure 30 k/cal plus corn oil has been re-started – slowly (5 ml/hr), but we’ll get there.
Today’s nurse also went ahead and made us our trach bags and she kept turning down the oxygen. Bella is at 25% FIO2 and a PEEP of 9. Her tidal volumes are still 60. Today has been a very good day!
