CPAP and Nasal Cannula
Every once in a while we go back and reread the blog just for a little history lesson (it takes everything in us not to correct errors...we may eventually as we are both teachers and cannot stand it). However, we have noticed that for the past few days of pictures Karsie is on the nasal cannula, which may give the impression that she is on that continuously. She is only on it about 8 hours a day, but the NICU staff are wonderful and trying to time it so she gets on the cannula when we are there so we can see her face. However, we do have a couple pictures that show her on the CPAP machine that is a bit new. She kinda looks like Hannibal Lecter.
Disclaimer: Nana said "she doesn't look like Hannibal Lecter." Which is true. The mask does. So for now we'll say it also looks like an old school football helmet.
