Late afternoon update (Wednesday 12/17)

Carolyn was away from GU from 11 to 3 attending some tiresome function at her husband's office. While she was away, Nurse J. reports that Max did really well---only a couple of minor desats. He was getting a little supplemental oxygen through his cannula, though. Carolyn held him from 3 to 5, and at some point noticed that his oxygen hose had fallen out so that he was getting nothing through his cannula, not even forced room air so that's good news. He's tolerated his feeds well.

The NICU team seem convinced that his feeding tube is in the right place, and he didn't seem to have problems with his feeds today. Carolyn reports that Max was resting comfortable a few minutes ago.
