Today Greyson got a visit from his grandma and really enjoyed being held by her. He slept almost the entire time but decided to wake up at the end of the visit so everyone could look at his big eyes. He continues to do well on the nasal canula and we are hoping that soon he will be able to be on it even longer. At the end of four hours he gets so upset when they have to put the cpap back on him.
Today when I came in I was shocked to find a towell rolled up and held around his face. I just couldn’t imagine what the problem would have been that caused them to put that there. Upon further inspection though I realized that it was there as a make shift mechanism to hold his pacifier in place so he could suck on it. Usually when he sucks he actually spits out his pacifier unless you are holding it in place, well the nurse had taped the pacifier to the towel and wrapped it around his head in a way that held it right up to his mouth so he could suck whenever he wanted to. He really seemed to like that!
