Madeline's First Cuddle

It was a bit of an up and down day for Madeline today. She was doing quite well, and around noon she was able to come out of her Isolette for her first contact with her parents. Since it was Dad's birthday, he got the honors and Madeline did very well for the entire 50 minutes or so. (She managed to keep her oxygen saturation high -- in the 90s -- with fairly minimal supplemental oxygen.) Unfortunately, later in the day she had some trouble with her ventilator, and she had several "brady" episodes -- all of which were treated with a little extra stimulation.

Milo did a lot better today, but he needed to rest. We kept our interaction to visiting and containment holding. Hopefully we'll be able to hold him tomorrow.
