2 Months Ago Today

Mikan was born 2 months ago today. He is in about 50% oxygen and was unable to be weaned on his pressures and rates today. He is getting 12 bpm at a pressure of 43 cm of water. We were given papers for 2 month vaccinations today. Because he is on steroids (which are immunosuppressants), we are not sure if he should be getting a barrage of vaccines at this time. We plan on talking to the doctor about this tomorrow. We may try to extubate him tomorrow. However, he has not been put on caffeine in preparation for such an event.

He sure does have a lot of hair!!! Good luck tomorrow. I agree, talk to the doctor about those vaccines, he gets poked so much with blood draws, steroids etc. it is no wonder they get aggitated when they are handled. They may not remember all of this in the long term, but after two months he has to be a little leary when people start undressing him and rubbing areas of his body with alcohol preps!!!
