Ok, it's 12:30am but...
The bradycardic episodes have continued off and on all evening. After a couple of minutes he recovers on his own so for tonight we watch.
His night nurse was nice enough to reset the limits on the monitor alarms so that I can try to get some rest. Silly me still up on the laptop. Bad Mommy.
It is nice not to have to keep getting up to press the "silence" button every 30 seconds.
She promised she would keep a close eye on him (they can see everything from his monitor at the nurses station).
It finally happened, his IV went bad a few hours ago... *sigh*
When I told his nurse to "be prepared for a tough time", she obviously took me seriously. She excused herself and returned with a NICU nurse and let her place the new line.
All in all it wasn't too traumatic. This lady was good, she finally got one in his ankle.
Looks uber uncomfortable, but he's not complaining.
Now he's passed out snoozing and I'm on the computer perched in front of the monitor as it's NOT alarming anymore.
Guess I'll try to take advantage of it and get some rest.
Thank you all so much for loving my boy!
