post surgery update
Trey is improving greatly with his oxygen requirement. However last night he had a few spells where he stopped breathing for up to three minutes. They had to get emergency personnel from the critical care unit to get him to start breathing again. They are not sure why this happened but we haven't given him any morphine since and it hasn't happened again. The only problem with that is that he only has Tylenol for the pain so he's pretty uncomfortable. They are slowly starting to feed him again. He is up to 10 ml of pedialyte every three hours. If he continues to tolerate his feeds well they will slowly increase back to 60ml and then back to breast milk.
