October 19, 2009

Gestational Age: 37 weeks
Age: 10 weeks
Weight: 4 lbs 2 oz

I had a great time at our baby shower - great people, fun games, good food, and very nice gifts, and I am so happy to be back with Charlotte.

She showed us today that she wants to go home and make use of her gifts! She did a great job taking bottles, no full feeds, but she took at least a couple mls at each feed.

In addition, she hit possibly one of her most exciting milestones yet: breathing without support! Late this morning she did her usual trick of pulling on her nasal cannula, but this time she would not let me put it back into her nose. Around 3 her nurse decided to take the cannula out and give her a shot. She did very well all afternoon with minimal desats and even taking bottles without support. It's a definite possibility that she'll go back on the cannula as she wasn't really weaned, she went straight from 2-liters on the high-flow cannula to independence. However, she looks much more comfortable with less tape on her face!
