October 13, 2009

Charlotte did pretty well today. She took a little milk by mouth, but mostly through her feeding tube. She slept, had a bath and made the monitors beep all day - nothing unusual.

The nasal cannula liter flow was again reduced, now down to 1.0 liters. Hopefully we're not moving to quickly - I say we're because the doctors seem to be asking my permission now pretty regularly. I know they're trying to make me feel involved in her care, but it's clear that her progress is up to her and even they don't know when the right time to reduce her support is.

Laser eye surgery tomorrow. No one can tell me how long it will take, they say babies have a tendency to drop their heart rate during the procedure, which slows down the surgery. Great. I hope Charlotte's goes quickly so she can get some rest afterward.

I'll be thinking of Charlotte and her surgery tomorrow. Thanks so much for keeping us all informed. As a side note, I am now at 24 weeks. I have a newfound respect and am in complete awe in the awesomeness of you and Pat in Charlotte's early arrival. She's so lucky to have you two as parents.
