Gus was always fascinated with his little pulse oximeter that the nurses tried to keep on his little toe or finger. I think it was the little red glowing light that caught his attention….and made it so fun to play with and put in his mouth! About a month before Gus was released from the NICU, the docs decided it would be best to discontinue using the pulse oximeter on Gus, since it was not really getting an accurate reading from his mouth! Lol!!
I’m thankful for pulse oximeters, really I am, but it was a good day when we could stop having to battle keeping the little thing on a bored five month old! Lol!!
