I talked with Aarons neonatologist this morning.
Aaron was put back on the nasal CPAP today (as shown in yesterdays photo). He apparently did better on the nasal CPAP than on the mask CPAP.
His blood gases are still OK, so theyre keeping him on the CPAP. They are watching him closely, though, because he is taxing his respiratory system pretty well.
They tried feeding him again last night, but there was some green stuff, so theyll wait another couple of days before trying again.
Hes been on an antibiotic since last weekend, and he will be on it for a total of 10 days or so. There was a mild infection in his lungs that theyre trying to take care of.
Were planning on heading back to SF tomorrow.
