Day 9

Reece is doing great. I was able to hold him for the first time today. He lay on my chest for an hour and fell asleep. It was so amazing. They are increasing his breast milk intake by 1cc every 12 hours. He is still having some dips of Bradycardia (heart rate drops) put mostly it happens when he pulls out his cpap machine.

Matthew's iv got puffy so they wanted to put in a picc, a long term intravenous catheter which goes all the way up the arm to reach one of the larger veins located near the heart, so that they don't have to keep moving his iv. Unfortunately the procedure was unsucessful and had to be removed so another iv was put in. He is also having some problems absorbing his food so they reduced his breast milk back to 1cc every two hours.
