Off the ventilator

My lungs are in very good shape, due to the steroid injection given to Mum last week, and the top-up dose they gave me immediately after birth. I was put on a ventilator initially, but have already been taken off that and I’m now being given less invasive breathing support through a nasal cannula (as seen on the photos page).

I’m a bit jaundiced so I’m getting phototherapy to reduce my bilirubin levels. It’s a bit like sunbathing.

Born yesterday!

I was born last night at 23.36, by caesarian section. I weighed 640g (1.4 pounds). As I was 13 weeks premature, I was taken directly to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). I am likely to be there for at least 3-4 weeks, and then another 6-10 weeks in the special care unit in the hospital.

You can see some new pictures over on the photos page.
