Aulay, Day 36; No CPAP required!

Little striped britches.
Aulay is developing so quickly right now. As of today he no longer needs his CPAP, which stands for continuous positive air pressure. It's the mask-like device with a machine that pushes air into the nostrils to keep the airway open. He does have oxygen going into his nose, but air pressure isn't used any longer. This is good news. Also good news, the little man had his eyes tested today and the results showed no abnormalities. The nurse told me that she thinks the little prince will be moved to Level II this weekend. 

I was there for the wee one's 2 p.m. assessment, changing and feeding. The assessment went well, meaning his vital sounds are good. The changing of his diaper was good because it was full of poopy. Soon after his diaper was changed, he did it again. All this "action" required a change of clothing. For the first time the nurse put long pants on him. I took the pic-of-the-day at a terrible angle so as not to get in the way of the nurse. His bottom really wasn't higher than his head as it appears in the picture. It was just the crazy angle.

Today I'm creating a bio or two, proofing the coffee table book, and attending the initial meeting for an event on February 13, 2015. I spent about an hour and a half at the hospital, went to the grocery store, and then sent out an e-blast. I've been so busy I'll probably need a nap!
