SpO2

Updates on Xi En:

The main issue now is his oxygen saturation level (SpO2). The level was fluctuating a fair bit. Thus, Xi En had been given a blood transfusion last Sunday and also a maximum dosage of caffeine. The doctors have also done a series of blood tests and concluded that he didn’t show any signs of infection and his haemoglobin level is healthy after the blood transfusion. (PTL! :)) Doctors are saying that the condition is still probably due to his prematurity.

Yesterday, his weight stands at 1.82kg and he is tolerating the feeds well. Right now, we are praying his SpO2 level will continue to stabilise so that he can start learning how to bottle feed. At which, once Xi En can coordinate drinking milk on his own + breathing properly, he will be on his way home very soon. πŸ™‚

Please continue to pray that Xi En’s oxygen saturation level will stabilise (that he won’t require any more blood transfusion nor breathing assistance); he will continue to gain weight and have no signs of infection.

We know that many uncles and aunties can’t wait to see and cuddle him. Thus featuring more pictures of him while we wait. πŸ™‚
