Keeping Him Warm

E’s colour looks so much better today although he is quite cool. His last 3 temperatures have been just under 36 degrees so he is very well wrapped – he has got a sock on the foot without the oxygen saturation monitor, he’s got his usual hat on, a vest instead of the usual cotton tops that he wears and even a jumper that looks like it could fit a Barbie doll.

He has had a quiet and settled day although he has had a couple of major screams. He particularly likes a hot blanket though and settles immediately once swaddled in that.

Dr C came to see him and started him back on feeds – 2ml 4 hourly. He is to stay on the antibiotics for another 48 hours. I feel much better knowing that he is getting so much better.
