Hailey is almost two days old. Her condition seems to be OK. They are
assisting her breathing and adding oxygen as needed. She required a
surfactant to be added to her lungs. The one application seems to be
doing the trick. In a few days her body will manufacturing the
chemical on its own.
They will start feeding Hailey breast milk tomorrow. Luckily Brianna
has been able to get some milk. It is only a little amount, but Hailey
is only a little girl and will have enough nourishment. She won’t be
able to take a bottle for two to three weeks, so she will be feed by a
tube that is inserted into her stomach. If Brianna can’t produce
enough milk the NICU has ‘Donor Milk’ that they will use.
