Over 24 hours!!
Well Brielle is still off the vent and on the neo prong CPAP! She has been anywhere from 38%-60% all day! She has been off of it 27 hours now (6pm). GO BRIELLE!!!! She is doing very well and dont really see her going back on so far. But this is the NICU. And things change in the blink of an eye! Shes been having more bradys today (where she stops breathing) But I truly think thats because the prongs have some moisture in them and it goes down her nose and kind of drowns her alittle bit. Think how you feel when you get a nose full of water. You dont like it, and she doesnt either so she holds her breath. She recovers pretty much by herself with no assistance which is a good thing! She weighs 2 lbs 14.2oz. Not getting to the 3lbs mark as quickly as we expected. But the nurses are not too concerned with them taking the tube out (a few extra oz) and her having to breath all on her own, burns calories. So I guess mom wont pout about it quite yet! Just want her to be a big girl already!
