Brandon has been off of his oxygen since yesterday morning at 11:00 and is still off and doing really well. I was at the hospital all afternoon and his sats were in the high 90's and 100 a lot of the time. Unless things change drastically he should be going home without oxygen. One of the residents came to talk to me today and told me about several appointments that have been made for him once he is home. He has the opthamologist on Monday, the pediatrician on Monday (I am waiting for them to call so I can schedule it but I am sure it will not be a problem), the cardiologist on October 10th because of his VSD (hole in the heart), and the pulmonary doctor in 2 weeks. He will also have to go back to the pulmonary doctor 2 weeks after that for his next RSV shot. I also have 4 prescriptions that I need to get filled for Brandon. Brandon is now having bottles when he appears hungry which is pretty much every 3-4 hours. He is allowed to have as much as he wants. It is also still looking like Saturday is the big day to bring him home!
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
