So we made it through another admission. Thankfully it was pretty uneventful. The Milrinone did it’s job and Katy was bounced back pretty quickly. We are all just really hoping and praying that this “tune up” will get us through to Christmas. We are all pretty confident that it will, and if it doesn’t well I know for a fact Santa knows where to find Katy. He found her there when she was just 5 days old.
Katy’s resilience and happy self amazes me and everyone who meets her. Now that she is a frequent flyer on 8 East…we had a ton of visitors from all our favorite nurses!! Totally makes our days & nights easier.
We are home on STRICT fluid restriction as we are all in agreement that keeping her a bit dry will keep us out of the hospital. She is limited to 450 mls by mouth which works out to be about 15 oz. As you can imagine it is a struggle to limit her intake on our salt loving, spice seeking baby girl. So far so good. We weigh her each morning and are monitoring her breathing and activity and are so happy that all seems good.
