I called and talked with Linda, Aarons day-shift nurse for today and tomorrow.
This was the first day that Linda has taken care of Aaron. A few weeks ago, she used to take care of Marko, another baby whose isolette is located close to Aarons, and she used to see Aaron then. Today, she said she cant believe how big Aaron is. She said hes doing fine today, and weighs the same as he did yesterday, which is good. We dont want him to be gaining too much too quickly; he had a big gain yesterday.
The big news of the day is that theyre trying Aaron on nasal cannula only today; theyre going to try keeping him off of CPAP completely. We cant predict how this is going to go. If he gets tired hell be put back on CPAP, but the doctor wants to see how Aaron will do. When I called, Aaron had been off of CPAP for about 3 hours, and was doing just fine.
