Well, Fiona has been home from the hospital for over a week now. They never found any infection or anything so that's good! She was 5 months old on the 20th! Crazy how fast things are going! We talked to one of the surgeons while we were in the hospital and he said that we don't need to put a dressing on her O anymore! So while we were there we tried to leave it bare. Besides it being weird because we had been doing it for so long, it just wasn't working. At one point I sat her up to play with her and then when I layed her back down part of the skin peeled off. The surgeon just told us to put a non-adhering pad on it (which is what we usually use) but to leave it unwrapped. Well then it was just getting junk all over the place and making all of her clothes all gross! So we decided that we needed to keep wrapping it and have been wrapping it since we have been home. He also told us that we could put her in the bathtub! We were SO excited about that! She was in need of a good bath! So Sunday night when we got home from the hospital Fiona got her first real bath. She was really mad for the first couple minutes but then loved it! We have been giving her a bath about every other night and she is getting really good at splashing and getting Daddy wet!
We have been trying to change her feeding schedule around since that is what landed her in the hospital in the first place. While she was in the hospital we went back to feeding her 65cc every 3 hours with 24 cal/oz formula. Last Tuesday we changed it to feeding her 70cc every 3 1/2 hours with 26 cal/oz formula. On Friday we went to 75cc every 4 hours of 26 cal/oz formula (normal baby formula is 22 cal/oz). She was fine on Friday, but then Saturday night at 3 am she threw up (while I stayed up with her all night, which is another story in itself). Then last night she threw up after her 7 pm feeding. This morning she threw up after her 3 am, and 11 am feedings, and then again after her 3 pm feeding. We're not really sure what is going on. It might be that the 75 is too much for her at one time, or she might not be tolerating the jump in calories. Luckily we go to Pittsburgh tomorrow for appointments with Surgery, Pulmonology, and ENT. So besides figuring out why she is throwing up, we should get some answers about everything else too. I will try to update with what we find out in the next couple days!
