Weaning the vent
Sorry I have not updated in a few days it has been crazy to say the least. It is hard to blog when all 8 other kids are home. We are patiently waiting for 2 babies to be born in this family. My Niece is being induced today and sometime later we will welcome Josephine May into the family. Meghan is due 2-2 but I think Lily is waiting to be born on grandmas birthday. Yes Sunday 2/1 is my birthday. Wow 32 and I feel so old already.
Soli is doing well. she is floating around the 3 lb mark. As of yesterday her Co2 levals were finally in the 40s so they are slowly weaning down the vent. She has been at the vents highest settings (60 Breaths per minute) for over a week and we were afraid that if her Co2 levals did not come down she might have to go on the jet vent. The jet vent is a high frequency vent. I guess she overheard me and Margie talking about that and decided to start behaving. As of last ishe was down to 51 RPM and 45% O2.
