Someone decided she wasn’t going to put up with tubes in her nose anymore! She kept ripping the tubing out of the stickers on tbe side of her head. After trying to fix it many times last night we gave in. It was a losing battle.
So far so good. Her breathing seems fine. Her congestion is improved. And the nose piece irritated her nose. We go to the doctor in the afternoon to check her oxygen and I’m sure they’ll say she’s done with oxygen anyway.
Our remaining issue is her gas causing her pain. I finally broke down and tried gripe water which seems to take the worst of it away. It’s pretty expensive to use all the time but to have less crying seems to be worth it, especially at night. The other night I spent 5 hours either nursing or comforting her which isn’t sustainable. Part of the problem was energy waves hitting her but the gas is the worst. I’m also going to reduce my dairy intake in case she’s sensitive to the milk proteins. We suspect this is simply having an immature digestive system.
