October 27, 2009

Today was bath day and Charlotte loves her post-bath time in the towel.

We're still working on her feeds. After her bath she pulled out her feeding tube and then took 32 mls at her next feed (a full feed is now 40 mls). The nurse insisted upon putting the tube back in and she took around 10 mls at each feed thereafter. I'm sure it's not related, but I don't think I'd feel like eating with a tube up my nose. Today was the first day in a while where she took something at each feed, so it's progress!

Today was the big hearing screen and she passed. Not a surprise as she startles and looks toward noise, but nice to have confirmed.

Sounds like various strains of flu are getting a lot of people sick this year. Charlotte's too young to receive the vaccination herself, and getting any respiratory illness would be very serious for her. So, we'll be keeping her nice and quarantined at home for quite a while. I will happily exchange the hospital for our apartment, when she's ready.

She is precious. Looking healthier with each picture. I hope she can go home soon.

Love from Duluth,
