Aerys Survival

Aerys will be Home SOON!

Doctor's Update:

Hi Mommy Cristina!

He's tolerating 30 ml of breast milk via cup every 2 hours. So far all vital signs are stable and he has good bowel movement and urine output.

Ophtha checked on his eyes yesterday and noted a subconjunctival hemorrhage daw. They're not sure where it came from but said that it's nothing to worry about and it will resolve by itself within 2-3 weeks.

If everything goes well, we may be able to discharge him by next week.

We will continue giving breast milk for as long as it is available, but once we run out of stocks and you can't express as much, we will supplement na lang with a preterm milk formula.

Aerys Stronger Than Ever

With today's visit, our baby Aerys show positive signs of development. He can basically adapt on a normal environment.

As were waiting on his growing stage (32 weeks by far), his heart (vsd), eyes (retinopathy), and brain (white matter) structure are still under observation.

We continue to pray and hope for his recovery.

"Hey little fighter, soon things will be brighter."

Aerys at birth was noted to be limp, blue, with no heart rate. Stimulation was done and on the 1st minute, he was still noted to be limp, blue, with heart rate less than 100.

Positive pressure ventilation was done to help Aerys pick up a heart rate of 120s.

He was on a journey that required him to be fierce.

Doctor's Update:

Hi mommy Cristina. Update on Baby Aerys - tolerated room air, 20 ml feeds via OGT every 3 hours and transferred to bassinet na today. He's beginning to suck already but since he's less than 34 weeks corrected age, I think di pa i-allow to suck kasi baka mapagod especially dahil may cardiac problem siya.

He's also maintained on Furosemide for now to prevent heart failure from fluid overload.

Naka-phototherapy pa din coz the bilirubin remains to be elevated for his age.

Referred to Dr. Abes-Servera (pedia ophtha) for retinopathy of prematurity screening and to Dr. Grasparil (pedia radiologist) for cranial ultrasound.

Will update you again once with results.

Let's pray we won't need to transfer na. Aerys' progress is very good. Halos grower na lang siya. He might get an infection pa from other institutions eh. Let's continue to pray and hope for the best.

God is good. 💙😇🙏

Thank you!

I heard him cry out loud for the first time. It's also the first time I saw his eyes opened and looked at me curiously 😁

Hoping his bilirubin level will decrease today and will show another good sign of development.

Lots of Love - Mom & Dad 💙

Last night, a murmur sound was observed through Aerys heart and require to under 2D Echo for identification.

It crashes my heart to hear that we have the same illness, Ventricular Septal Defect.

As a preemie baby, we are hoping this condition will not affect much our baby and eventually subside.
