Tori looked and acted better yesterday evening when I was with her, although still not completely like she usually does, but at least she was full of smiles for me and awake, something that hasn't happened the 2 previous days. Throughout the day her poop transitioned back to what we think of as "normal" for her....the doctors have no explanation for any of it other than them agreeing with me that maybe she picked up a virus.

Right around her 3 PM feed, she sneezed and apparently did something to the stint placement in her left nostril, you can now see the bottom of it. They called in opthomology and they had no idea so they called the reconstructive people and they are just going to watch it. It doesn't seem to be bothering her at all but it is a little worrysome since I would be afraid to place an NG tube on that side because of it, hopefully it doesn't happen to the other side as well!

She once again had a DIFFERENT nurse, even though her primary was working. She actually ended up with 3 different nurses throughout the day, 3 people that had never worked with her before, when all the discharge coordinator and doctors keep saying is that consistency is the key to getting her eating and home. Someone seriously needs to look at the staffing at that hospital. It is hard for me to believe that this is the 3rd best newborn intensive care unit in the entire country. I really worry about what the 6th best or 10th best or 200th best hospital must be like!
