12/29/91 — Our NICU Journey Day 43

December 29, 2010

Isaac — Not weighed

Molly — 652 grams

Here's Isaac hanging out under his little oxygen tent, sucking his thumb, relaxed and on his tummy.


Almost 57 hours off the vent and you are still hanging in there. You have had several heart rate drops today, but you have corrected yourself. Papa held you for the first time today. We told him how much you liked your music box, so he brought it back for you to hear it tonight.


You’re back up in the mid 650s again today in weight. I still think the scale was wrong yesterday, but you have got a lot of growing to do, so they put some fortifier in my breast milk to give you some extra calories (24 instead of 20). Papa touched you for the first time today. He was very excited. He and Daddy are working on your new room. It’s coming along nicely. It will be small, but then again, so are you and Isaac.
