Yesterday, Witt was given half formula and half pedialyte again. Unfortunately, he's just not able to tolerate it yet. He had several really loose dirty diapers through the night. His lab work at 5am showed his sodium was slightly up...headed back in the wrong direction. At rounds the attending decided to try 1/4 formula and 3/4 pedialyte and increase the overall amount of pedialyte. The thought is that nothing is really going on except that Witt's system just isn't ready for much formula. So far all the tests to try to determine what caused this have come back negative. There is a very good chance we will never know what caused it. Witt will just get well and go home!!!!
I thought Witt woke up with his...
"Conan" hairstyle but after seeing this picture of Donald it might be the "Trump" style!!!
Since Witt's mouth gets very dry, Mel gives him drops of
water with a syringe. He's a very cute baby birdie!!
