5/14/92 (Day 180) — Preemies at Home, day 47

May 14, 2011

So sleepy. Isaac was having a good night for a change. Ike the Spike — look at all that black hair growing in straight up. Molly, on the other hand, was squirmy. This was a new nurse, who probably didn't know that Molly was born squirmy. Even back in the isolette, she would flip-flip and scoot herself from one side of her little box to the other. To this day, she is a a restless sleeper, all elbows and knees. I pity her life partner.

[ed. note: To our regular readers, thanks for your patience during our unexpected hiatus. Life got a little hectic, picking up the girl from her first year at college (straight As!) and celebrating the youngest brother’s bar mitzvah. We’ll be catching up as quickly as possible. Thanks for sticking with us. 5/26/11]

Home nursing notes:


Ike had a great night. Slept well. A little cranky at 6:00 a.m., then back to sleep. Feedings — 2:30 – 3:00 a.m., 45 ccs, great sucking; 5:15 -5:45 a.m. (with Mylicon), 45 ccs, OK sucking. Very alert when awake. Voided, no stool.


Molly’s night was not so peaceful. Squirmed around frequently most of the night (every 15-20 minutes). Maybe gas? Mylicon at 4:00 a.m. No. stool. Feedings — 2:00-2:30 a.m., sleepy, coaxing necessary, 50 ccs; 4:45-5:15 a.m., 30 ccs, stopped due to Ike! 5:45-6:00 a.m., 20 ccs, fell asleep. Asleep but still squirming at 7:00 a.m. (but less). Nitro applications back on schedule (see times and limbs). Hope to see you all again! — Mary Jo
