Morning update (Thursday 12/18)

Just a quick update: Max had a quiet night. Nurse C. reported one minor brady/desat at the 3:30 call. Max dropped down right after a feeding but popped back up on his own; there seemed to be some milk at the back of his throat. In today's poop journal entry: a large deposit at 2:00 AM (no word whether Nurse C., as advised, held off on his bath). The NICU team put Max on a mild diuretic yesterday, one that takes a while to operate. Nurse C. reports that Max's diapers were twice as heavy as normal and that look less puffy--i.e. oedemic.

Updates to the head circumference figure will be suspended for technical reasons until this weekend.
