Little Akira fights for survival

Update posted by SIEW HUI TAN On Nov 21, 2017

Finally, after so long await, CPAP was off!!! Now Akira only need nasal prong room air.

Another good news... Akira can be moved to open incubator as her weight is near 1.5kg (1.47kg in exact)
Without the incubator hood, we can hear her voice whenever she makes any noise or yawn. It's definitely a big step forward for us.

Another few more grams then she can be transfer out to GCU. Awaiting that day to come, hopefully soon, very soon.

Thanks everyone who donated, supporting, encouraging and still following up with Akira's status. She can't wait to meet you all! Soon!

Today, 1st Nov 2017, marked our one month journey with our little fighter Akira.

Our little fighter is really a great survival! She has grown so much since her dramatic weight lost during the first few days period of life (which is normal even for a journal term baby). Her birth weight was 1020g and she dropped till 769g (lowest) on day 4/5.

Ever since then, she has gradually, albeit slow, increasing and gaining weight with only exclusively breast milk feeding (via tube because she still can't suck). She finally break the 1000g record last Friday, and today she is 1088g.

Trial of weaning CPAP started this week. However, she can only tolerate normal breathing for awhile.

Although it's still a long way to go in order to achieve 2500g, totally wean off CPAP and NICU, we know she will definitely make it!

Gambataeneh Akira-chan! Otoshan and Okashan Aishiteru!
