Just spoke with the nurses taking care of the boys...ugh I don't know how this week will go. 2 weeks tomorrow and the infections are starting???!!! To start with Logan. I guess they decided to treat his PDA today. This could be one of the reasons for his pulmonary hypertension and his inability to improve and get off the vent. They just treat it with 3 does of Ibuprofen every 12 hours. This is suppose to help the duct close. He is still having more than normal drops in his oxygen. Jacob the only one who does not still have a PDA is doing fine. They are sill increasing his feedings. He is doing okay on 2liters of oxygen on nasal canula. Oh they stopped increasing Logan's feeds for now they stopped at 8cc. Jacob is at 13cc now and still going up 1cc every 12 hours. The nurse also said he had some eye crusty things so they are starting him on antibiotic eye drops. Andrew had a blood cx done last night and is having some breathing issues today. He is needing a little more help than usual. They started him on antibiotics. They are not treating his PDA yet...I don't know why.
