Since Olivia came home from the hospital on Mother’s Day, she has remained on the higher oxygen. We did an overnight pulse ox study to watch her oxygen levels while she slept. The study didn’t look horrible, but she had some pretty significant dips during the night. With that, the doctor decided that he doesn’t want to monkey with her oxygen just yet. She sees him again on June 12, so we’ll see what he has to say then.
We have also been working on switching Olivia over to a pediatric formula. It’s been a challenge to say the least. We tried one, but she started vomiting and absolutely refused to let the bottle come anywhere near her mouth. It had a strong vanilla sent, so I am sure it had a strong vanilla taste, which apparently she does not like. They have now switched her to a different, more easily digestible, flavorless pediatric formula. She is still vomiting and at this point we think it’s one of her meds because most of the vomiting comes after the feedings with which she gets her medications. No meds have been changed lately, so we’re not sure which one might be the culprit. Hopefully we can figure it out before we end up in the hospital with aspiration pneumonia again!
We have more play dates coming up that I can hopefully remember to take some pictures of. We will also be having each of my nieces over for a few days to play, which Olivia will LOVE! She really loves other kids now!
We also have quite a few doctor appts coming up in the next couple of weeks. I’ll really try not to be such a slacker anymore!
Enjoy a few new pics of our little doll!
Here's Olivia during her last hospital stay. She clearly isn't acting like anything is wrong, and definitely showing her spunk!
