Monday, August 24, 2009

Charlotte is officially 2 weeks old today! Her weight is waivering between 1 lb 9 oz and 1 lb 10 oz, but apparantly this is enough of a change from her 1 lb 7 oz birth weight to increase her diaper size. According to tonight's nurse, the bigger diapers are less "flimsy."

With the help of the CPAP and a vibrator, Charlotte's air sacs are opening back up and she's breathing quite well. The best news of the day - the doctor said she could begin eating again today and she has been digesting her milk. She received 1 ml every 3 hours and we hope she can keep it up.

Katie returned to Marquette today from Hougton after a 2-week follow-up appointment. All went well. It was great to get a ride back to Marquette from Grandpa Russell as one night away from Charlotte was hard enough. Patrick will be staying in Houghton until Wednesday to work a few days and take our car in for a new timing belt.
